historical reasons. Initially, the x84-64 platform only supported powernow-k8,
so there was little reason to make it modular. With the advent of Intel's
EM64T's with speedstep however, it's no longer the case.
I need to have a big sweep-n-clear of the config options. There's a bunch
of others that are enabled but shouldn't be, and vice versa..
