The powernow_k8 debug message is the same whether I use an ACPI kernel
or non-ACPI kernel. Either way it says the following:
k8pnow_states: before the for loop
k8pnow_states: returns 0!
k8_powernow_init: returned 0!
k8_powernow_init: k8pnow_current_state is NULL!
Would it help to also attach my dmesg for the non-ACPI kernel?
