Default Bug#405140: linux-2.6 - xen images does not support frequency scaling

I can confirm this problem with linux-image-2.6.18-5-xen-amd64 on a Dell
PowerEdge 6850 with Intel Xeon CPUs. It does not occur use the non-Xen
kernel image (linux-image-2.6.18-5-amd64).

# uname -a
Linux somehostname 2.6.18-5-xen-amd64 #1 SMP Tue Oct 2 21:48:12 UTC 2007
x86_64 GNU/Linux
# dmesg | grep processor:
processor: Unknown symbol pm_idle
processor: Unknown symbol pm_idle
processor: Unknown symbol pm_idle

I wonder what the consequences are. Will my processors overheat and the
system burn?

Janusz, should I install your patch and create a custom kernel or does
my system work without it?

My server (PC clone) works without it. However, if I see that initrd images
created in Debian supported way do load thermal.ko as the very first module,
I think there must be a reason for this.

Maybe other kernel or initramfs-tools package maintainers, not only Bastian
Blank, could share their point of view?
