See this bug report:

This is not a problem with the KDE module, but the with 2.6.20 SMP
kernel in Feisty (and a number of prior ones, going back to mid-2006)
reporting the CPU load incorrectly.  This does not happen for single CPU
kernels.  I solved it by recompiling my kernel for single CPU.  It's
been reported that installing the -i386 (as opposed to the -generic)
kernel solves this issue as well.  If you have a hyperthreaded or dual-
core CPU this may not be the best option for you, though.

I also noticed that the system with the stock generic kernel did
throttle when using the "conservative" governor, but that make the KDE
powermanager crash; the .deb package above solved this only partially in
that it won't crash anymore, but will switch back to the "ondemand"
governor which does not throttle appropriately.
