[PATCH 4/5] cpufreq: Add compatibility hack to powernow-k8

From: Matthew Garrett
Date: Tue May 17 2011 - 13:04:18 EST

cpufreq modules are often loaded from init scripts that assume that all
recent AMD systems will use powernow-k8, so we should ensure that loading
it triggers a load of acpi-cpufreq if the latter is built as a module.
This avoids the problem of users ending up without any cpufreq support
after the transition.
