Package: cpufrequtils
Version: 008-1
Severity: important
Tags: patch

Currently cpufrequtils does not work for Power architectures, including
powerpc, ppc64 and ppc64el.

Disabling the binary generation to avoid users to install it instead of
the official package (Linux-power), thus, causing unnecessary conflicts.
