So now I've tested it, and it works somehow. The problem is that I
cannot set cpufv=2, it is stuck at cpufv=1 so it doesn't cycle between
the three (or two) values. (I can change it from 0 to 1 with the key).

Now that I've tested I know why, it's really slow.

Another question, is there a way to know how much power the eeepc is
using, the ACPI one returned by powertop is bogus. I've read that it
is because of wrong units, but is there another way? Thanks.
