I have:
CONFIG_INT340X_THERMAL=m

From the turbostat startup spew of stuff
(also in a link on the web page version of the e-mail):

MSR_IA32_TEMPERATURE_TARGET: 0x0064100d (100 C)

Or manually now:

root@s18:/home/doug/prime95# rdmsr 0x1a2
64100d

Yes, that is a test I meant to do, and should have done.

No, it doesn't help.

Ya, I have always found documentation on 0x1FC somewhat lacking.
Anyway, the bit is already 1.
Is the bit EE_TURBO_DISABLE?
Anyway, I tried that bit as 0, and it didn't help.
