[dwm] [OT] frequency scaling and power consumption

BIOS support choosing a smaller multipliers to reduce cpu frequency.
linux also supports frequency scaling such powernowd. Some google
page said cpu throttling can not reduce power consumption. My
experience is that it seems to lower temperature. If it can also
reduce power consumption, I'm willing to save money by running cpu at
half of its current frequency. Any idea.

    獨有宦遊人  偏驚物候新  雲霞出海曙  梅柳渡江春
    淑氣催黃鳥  晴光轉綠蘋  忽聞歌古調  歸思欲霑巾
