/proc/cpuinfo log

    The /proc/cpuinfo reported wrong operating frequency, where my AMD 3900X shows over 6 GHz when idle.
    This may be caused by the 5.11 AMD CPU frequency / CPPC fix.

Steps to Reproduce: 
    cat /proc/cpuinfo

Actual Results:
    Reported operating frequency far beyond actual. (Over 6 GHz)

Expected Results:
    Reported actual operating frequency.

Build Date & Hardware:
    Build 2021-02-15 on Gentoo
    CPU: AMD Ryzen 9 3900X 12-Core Processor
    CPPC: enabled

Additional Information:
    /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu*/cpufreq/scaling_cur_freq reported correct frequency.

I'm still having an issue with frequencies being reported incorrectly. Here's a thread for reference: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=1961500#p1961500

I've updated to kernel version 5.11.6. If I watch /proc/cpuinfo, that seems to be reporting somewhat accurately now. However, lscpu and most everything else is still reporting inaccurately.

~ → uname -r
~ → lscpu | grep MHz
CPU MHz:                         3400.000
CPU max MHz:                     7228.3198
CPU min MHz:                     2200.0000
~ → geekbench --sysinfo | grep -E "Processor Information|Name|Base Frequency"
Processor Information
  Name                          AMD Ryzen 9 5950X
  Base Frequency                6.92 GHz
