re: wrong estd value

   My Dell XPS M1330 has a "Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU     T7300  @ 2.00GHz"
   But sysctl reports 2200 MHz option for machdep.est.frequency: = 1200
   machdep.est.frequency.current = 1200
   machdep.est.frequency.available = 2200 2000 1800 1600 1400 1200
   I'm using estd with the '-M 2000' option so I don't use the wrong value. I
   just wanted to know if this would be a NetBSD code discover issue, CPU
   related or BIOS issue ?

this is a netbsd issue.  my Q9450 says this:

cpu0 at mainbus0 apid 0: Intel 686-class, 2660MHz, id 0x10677
cpu0: Enhanced SpeedStep (1148 mV) 800 MHz
cpu0: Enhanced SpeedStep frequencies available (MHz): 800 800 700

looking into est(4) is unfortuntely not high on my TODO list.
