Description of problem: CPUScaling test aborted during the test in RH5.7 x86 XEN kernel
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RH5.7 x86 XEN kernel build GA
2. Install RH certification test kits
3.Run CPUScaling test
CPUScaling test aborted during the test in RH5.7 x86 in XEN kernel because of no physical_package_id directory. However, there is physical_package_id directory in baremetal kernel, and the test passed without any problem.

Cpuscaling testing with the -xen kernel is not required. Also as noted -xen does not currently provide physical_package_id even in dom0 which is requierd for the cpuscaling test so I'm going to go ahead and close this as not a bug given expected behavior and not a certification blocker.
A RHEL bug could be opened to request the physical package id be provided, however (and this is just a guess I do not speak for the RHEL team) but I would suspect that would be denied without some other use case.
