[Bug 119940] Re: /proc/cpuinfo reports incorrect information for Via C3


Unfortunately, Ubuntu no longer even supports booting from this nice
little CPU beyond lucid.  Obviously, this will not get fixed in Ubuntu.
Marking as such.

  /proc/cpuinfo reports incorrect  information for Via C3

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: linux-source-2.6.15

  The output of "cat /proc/cpuinfo" is wrong

  processor       : 0
  vendor_id       : CentaurHauls
  cpu family      : 6
  model           : 6
  model name      : VIA Samuel
  stepping        : 2
  cpu MHz         : 400.179

  My CPU has 600 MHz.  And while cpu frequency scaling was still working
  (c.f. bug 45747) I always saw the true frequency to be underreported
  by 33%.  It was 400/200 MHz when the machine was really running at
  600/400 MHz.

  Some possibly related issues where frequency is incorrectly reported
  are being discussed at
