I have to admit I just looked at the issue again a few days ago.
I used a recent -current (maybe about a week old now) and I re-adapted
my config file from GENERIC. This added
acpicpu* at cpu? # ACPI CPU (including frequency scaling)
and this silences the messages!
(If this is because everything works now, or the failing attempt is not
tried any more, I don't know yet).
However, twice now the kernel with this option has frozen completely on
me, within minutes after boot and login.
I also noticed that estd (for dynamic frequency scaling) didn't like to
work any more. It claimed not to recognize the cpu. I had to re-add
even though there also is
est0 at cpu0 # Intel Enhanced SpeedStep (non-ACPI)
This is probably unrelated, though.
