is there a tool available to set the processor speed (not the throttling) for 
Pentium-M CPUs?
Depending on what you need it for you can make a simple shell script 
setting the sysctl hw.acpi.cpu.throttle_state, or you could write a 
small program polling the battery-state and setting the speed based on that.
