Description of problem:

I just tried to compile package kernel-utils-2.4-13.1.39 from 
Redhat Fedora Core 3.

The compiler said

cpuspeed.cc(451): warning #175: subscript out of range

The source code is

            saved_governor[MAX_CPUS][MAX_SAVE_STRING] = '\0';

but, just a few lines before

    static char saved_governor[MAX_CPUS][MAX_SAVE_STRING+1];

So it is clear that saved_governor[MAX_CPUS] doesn't exist.

Suggest code re-work.

This is broken code from a Red Hat patch. I suggest downloading my original
CPUSpeed 1.2.1 sources from http://carlthompson.net/software/cpuspeed .

Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!
