	I just installed linux 3.7.2 from [testing] on an AMD system and
noticed that powernow-k8 is not loaded. As a result, the CPU is stuck at the
maximum frequency because ondemand governor is inactive.
	The precise model is AMD PhenomII X4 955, and modprobe error is:
% modprobe -vv powernow-k8
modprobe: INFO: custom logging function 0x40ab40 registered
modprobe: INFO: Failed to insert module
'/lib/modules/3.7.2-1-ARCH/kernel/drivers/cpufreq/powernow-k8.ko.gz': No such
device modprobe: ERROR: could not insert 'powernow_k8': No such device
modprobe: INFO: context 0x21c91b0 released
insmod /lib/modules/3.7.2-1-ARCH/kernel/drivers/cpufreq/powernow-k8.ko.gz
Meanwhile, linux 3.6.11 works fine. Notice also, that acpi_cpufreq 3.7.2 is
fine on a INtel core2duo machine.
	Is it only me, or others have seen this too?
