Don't be, it was useful :)

Try attached patch for this.

I don't really have a reason for that :(
But with your config it is clear that, your working setup has:

# CONFIG_X86_INTEL_PSTATE is not set
# CONFIG_X86_PCC_CPUFREQ is not set
CONFIG_X86_ACPI_CPUFREQ=m

and rc4 version has:

CONFIG_X86_INTEL_PSTATE=y
CONFIG_X86_PCC_CPUFREQ=m
CONFIG_X86_ACPI_CPUFREQ=m

So, i believe you are using another cpufreq driver this, try with same
configuration once.

My attached patch will restore 1. instead of CASE 2.

This must be related to your different driver.

These were very important and helpful.
