Bug Description

I have just been looking at the source code for asus_eee module on array.org
Source code link
http://git.array.org/?p=array/ubuntu-intrepid.git;a=blob;f=ubuntu/asus_eee/asus_eee.c;h=4b364324b51b0a5830d6c9cee9eea4cdeda01ef2;hb=3c639fd5137a5f4b124699e8fab8c1ed7633e471

In the function EEE_PROC_WRITEFUNC(fsb) there are default values of n = 70 and m = 24.

My understanding is that on the Celeron based EEEs this will give a CPU speed of 630 MHz (which is a sensible default), but on the Atom based EEEs this will give a CPU speed of 2,333 MHz which is likely to fry the CPU if they are ever used.

This function should be changed to include sensible defaults for the Atom based EEEs
