Seriously, acpi modules should be autoloaded based on DMI and ACPI
table matching (almost done), and the governors should probably be
built-in (as userspace is generally wrong.)
The problem arises with older (and some crappy recent) hardware.
We can't always just use on-demand. Which is why in some cases
we still use the userspace daemon. (VIA CPUs are notoriously bad
with ondemand up until their latest generation).
