[pve-devel] intel pstate: wrong cpu frequency with performance governor

I have add some strange behaviour of some host last week, (cpu performance degrading)
and I have found than 3 hosts of my 15 host cluster have wrong cpu frequency.
All nodes are dell r630, with xeon v3 3,1ghz. (all with last bios/microcode updates , last proxmox kernel)
On the 3 hosts, the frequency was stuck to 800mhz instead 3,1ghz. (note that on other host, the frequency was not stable, up and down between 3,09 && 3,2ghz....)
Cpu governor is correctly set to max performance in bios + linux.
It seem to be a problem with intel pstate driver.
I have disabled it with intel_pstate=disable in grub, (also can be disable with CONFIG_X86_INTEL_PSTATE=n)
and not frequency is super stable at 3,1ghz
Has somebody already seen this on xeon v3 ?
I just wonder if we could disable pstate driver by default? (user can still use cpufreq and other governors without pstate).
