this suggests that it will shot the hardware associated for TSC.
Phylosophically speaking which one is better?  shutting down kernel
component associated with it or the hardware component of the
system...

I am inclined to believe हरद्वार in this case... because it is the
system heartbeat we are talking about...

All other freq scaling services stopped or disabled already.. no
effect yet... maybe they have innershia :-)

good suggestion though!
