I just fixed the generator. Now It generates right P-state tables for revF of k8 
CPUs. I just implemented correct TDP estimations.

The program generates a ACPI ASL code which can be include in DSDT. It provides 
p-state info for powernow-k8 driver and windows driver.

Maybe we can move this slowly to runtime.

We need for future

1) execute cpuid on given CPU
2) execute rdmsr on given CPU
3) AML code generator for coreboot.

(multicore should not be an issue, issue will be multiprocessor).

Ad 3) see next email.
