This is not a bug about cpuspeed. If you use the other frequency scaling tools
(like cpudynd, cpufreqd, powernowd, and so on), it will also fail.
The reason which creates this bug is that the directory of
/sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq doesn't exist.
You should re-compile your kernel enabling cpufreq support.
This was actually us needing to load powernow-k8 instead of acpi-cpufreq. Latest
cpuspeed release should do the right thing now.
