in thread Current processor frequency?

perhaps it's not as easy I thought..

to me it shows the current frequency, although I've got a smp kernel. (2.6.18)
Google said the same for most users.
So I'd guess it's dependent on the kernel version, I wasn't able to find something more specific in the kernel documentation.
A short research in the kernel sources didn't answer this, too.

What google also told me..

There is more info in the files

cpuinfo_cur_freq is only readable by root on my system, so this could lead again into problems.

At least my question how the max frequency can be determined has been answered. :-)
