1.17.1. RHBA-2011:0502: cpuspeed bug fix update

An updated cpuspeed package that fixes one bug is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
The cpuspeed daemon manages the CPU frequency scaling.
This update fixes the following bug:
* The /etc/sysconfig/cpuspeed configuration file allows a user to specify custom maximum (the "MAX_SPEED" option) and minimum (the "MIN_SPEED" option) clock speed limits. Prior to this update, when a user removed these custom settings from the configuration and restarted the service, the cpuspeed init script failed to reset these values to the hardware-specific limits. With this update, the init script has been adapted to ensure that when the minimum or maximum clock speed value is not specified, cpuspeed correctly uses the value reported by the CPU. (BZ#616524)
All users of cpuspeed are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which fixes this bug.
