It's just too bad dynamic clocking doesn't work with overclocking.  I have 
an open bug report on this, but it's still broken; you can either have your 
stock clocks with throttling under linux, or you can overclock, but not 

(ex:  2160 that I clocked to 2.1 GHz, if I have speedstep enabled it blows 
over my overclock and runs at 1.2/1.8 GHz depending on the load.  To get it 
to stick at 2.1GHz, I have to disable speedstep.)
