I piddled about with it yesterday, found that you can't change cpufreq
governor IFF the tree is configured as rt, but works fine as voluntary
preempt.  I'll poke about for the entertainment value.  Having no
personal need/use for rt detracts from its hobby value somewhat, but rt
problems do have a tendency to be 'entertaining'.

I'll follow up with a few patches that folks can apply to their trees if
they so desire.  There being no devel tree to submit against, I can't do
a proper submission (rules), and some of them you surely don't want :)
