I've noticed what looks like some work overloads using the ondemand
governor. I'm pretty sure it is normal but I can see (user feeling) when
the system loads the processor by intermittence. It is visible on some
compilations tasks and when playing flash videos and compared to the
performance governor. I'm still runing a 2.6.26 kernel.
