Its on newly updated 11.3-RELEASE system.

Recently I got (quite old from 2013) Mini ITX motherboard with Celeron J1900 CPU:

Here is what 'system' sees.

# cat /var/run/dmesg.boot|grep CPU:
CPU: Intel(R) Celeron(R) CPU  J1900  @ 1.99GHz (2000.05-MHz K8-class CPU)

# sysctl hw.model

The powerd(8) daemon is not able to scale frequency on it ...

# /etc/rc.d/powerd onestart
Starting powerd.
powerd: error reading supported CPU frequencies: No error: 0
/etc/rc.d/powerd: WARNING: failed to start powerd

The powermon(8) also is not able to attach to it ...

# powermon      
CPU is unsupported

... but I am able to set different frequencies by hand with sysctl(8) command:

# sysctl dev.cpu.0.freq=1200

What other information can I provide?
