cpuspeed is a daemon that dynamically changes the speed
of your processor(s) depending upon its current workload
if it is capable (needs Intel Speedstep, AMD PowerNow!,
or similar support).
This package also supports enabling cpu frequency scaling
via in-kernel governors on Intel Centrino and AMD
Athlon64/Opteron platforms.
