This is also the problem behind bug 1579278 which recently affected an
IS machine. Forcing "powersave" on all newer x86 CPUs is a bug.

  ondemand init script sets governor "powersave" when only "powersave"
  and "performance" available

Status in sysvinit package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  My system seems to have governors "powersave" and "performance"
  available. No others.

  So by ondemand, I end up with "powersave", which makes my workstation
  excruciatingly slow.

  I think that in this case, "performance" should be preferred.
