It's not saying the file is missing, it's claiming the hardware
can't support frequency scaling.  modprobe is being extremely
noisy for reasons I haven't figured out.

On a system which can't do scaling, the modprobe gets an -ENODEV,
and instead of silently exiting, it decides to flap its arms a bit.

I had silenced this at one point in the kernel by making it not 'fail'
when the hardware wasn't present. Unfortunatly this broke suspend/resume
for a considerable number of people.
