Mmm.. spoke too soon.

I have not actually rebooted since killing powernowd,
and it just happened again now. No powernowd running.

Limit dropped from 1100Mhz to 800Mhz (log below).

Looks like there are thermal events happening that is causing CPU limits

there a thermal interface in /proc/acpi that can give you the current
temperature of the system?

There are thermal thingies in /proc, and I'm watching the temperature
value from there (62C --> 65C), and the trip_points value is 95C..

Think it's thermal?
