Does the G4 mac mini support cpu frequency scaling? I have the 1.5 GHz G4 model. I've compiled in CPU frequency scaling support into my kernel (2.6.16.11-vanilla) but the /sys/.../cpufreq filesystem doesn't exist.

Thanks!

I'm pretty sure the CPU does support it, but benh has said in the past that there is no power saved because the voltage isn't changed, so the feature is disabled because it really doesn't do anything.
