Okay, you were right of course, something happened when I did:
	# insmod thinkpad.o
	# tpctl -pmb=high

But then I guess I had to also load smpti.o because I got this:
tpctl: Power management mode for battery power has been set to high
power management modes:
   battery power expenditure:   (power management code not recognized)

Unfortunately, even after doing:
	# insmod smapi.o
	# insmod superio.o
	# insmod rtcmosram.o
	# tpctl -pma=high	(which reported success!)
	# tpctl -pmb=high	(which reported success!)

cat /proc/cpuinfo still reported:
	cpu MHz         : 91.978

BUT, after a reboot:
	# cat /proc/cpuinfo
	cpu MHz         : 363.965

So now The Who are rocking on my laptop (using Xine 0.9.0) a lot
better than they were yesterday.  363.965MHz isn't quite enough
to keep up The Who for perfect playback, but it's not too bad.

	So, thank you very much,

And for the record (ie. for people who might have the same problem
and find this message in the archive), to answer some of your questions

Also, my "Easy Setup" system didn't have an option to control power
managment anywhere that I could find.
