[PC-BSD Testing] Speedstep drivers?

I attempted to install the Intel Speedstep drivers via Freshports.  There are two utilities for throttling the CPU frequency, est and estctrl.  Both are supposed to be in the base system now.

One caveat I read said that 'est' does not support multiple processors and I have an Intel i7-920.

Do I simply enable this feature in loader.conf with powerd_enable="YES" ?

Seems according to this thread that it should work with multiple processors.

Anyone have experience with this?
