Let me see if I understand what you said. I understand how it works on
desktop and regular laptops. You load the module for the specific power
saving feature and either a kernel module to do the job or the userspace
module which then allows a daemon to do the frequency scaling.
Now the XO 1.5, AFAIK, isn't doing it or powerd is doing it(or openfw). I
tried loading the C7 power saver module but it can't find the device. Is it
already being taken and should I not worry with frequency scaling although
/proc/cpuinfo always shows 1000MHz?

That's definitely working as advertised and with a top notch response time
