Panny Wang,

The cpufreq-info looks good, but the ifconfig at the bottom is a bit
confusing with what you've sent over up to this point. Can you send the
exact ./benchmark_rate command that you're using (with all args included)
to produce the output you sent over initially? The MPMD info in the last
couple doesn't seem consistent with this ifconfig output:
