last one to run stomps over the other.

this one also seems to lack a lot of the logic in cpuspeeds initscript
to determine if we're actually capable of running the ondemand governor.

If the CPU is capable of running ondemand in a manner that it doesn't
introduce performance regressions, we choose it already in cpuspeed.
latency policy seems to be trying to second guess all of that.

My vote would be to rip out all of this from latencypolicy, and have lp
set the sampling rate sysfs knobs.
