Description of problem: speedstep CPU scaling on Asus Z62Fm is not working. 
speedstep-smi states "No supported Intel CPU detected."  Although it works fine
with FC6 2.6.20 kernel.  Similar to FC6 bug

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): RHEL Client 5 x86
kernel 2.6.18-8.el5 and 2.6.18-8.1.1.el5

How reproducible: Fresh install.

It's the same on my HP nc8430 laptop. The CPU is an Intel Core 2 Duo T7200.
Comment 6 Brian Maly 2009-03-11 13:51:20 EDT
The CPU detection appears to be misdetecting the exact processor type/model.

This is with the i386 (32bit) or the x86_64 (64bit) kernel?
