Running the Debian Squeeze default Xen, I am unable to get any of the CPU frequency scaling stuff going.

As soon as I revert to the standard kernel I get it.

Digging through the internet it seems that Xen got a few patches in 2010 my only guess is that they did not find their way into Debian yet.

Is there a way to get Turbo Boost going in debian Xen, is this in backports?

Are there any other distros out there that have cpufreq / turbo boost enabled for the Xen kernel?

What is the xen version? The hypervisor has to support this as well as the Dom0. – Nils May 9 '15 at 10:54
