Subject: 2.5.39-bk crashes here when P4 clock modulation enabled

if I enable P4_CLOCKMOD on my system (see dmesg below, family=15,
model=1, stepping=2), it oopses on next kmalloc after driver
initialization. Are there any known problems with cpufreq? Misbehaving

With P4_CLOCKMOD disabled everything works fine.

I have instrumented kmem_check_poison_obj in my kernel to check that
every byte in memory region is POISON_BYTE, not only that last byte is
POISON_END (this is fprob in stack trace), and to my surprise it dies
inside check because of it tries to access memory at 0x00000756 (ebp is
start of region kmalloc is trying to use, eax is end-1, edx is currently
checked address). If I remove my patches, it dies simillar way in memchr()
in kmem_check_poision_obj. I did not tried it without slab poisoning.
It is 100% reproducible.
