For my Hack#1 with CPU C2D E6300 I set name "MacPro3,1", for HackBook #3 with CPU C2D T8300 I set name @MacBookPro4,1". Is it true?

Look:
<dict>
						<key>Desc-Key</key>
						<string>CFG_Penryn</string>
						<key>Description</key>
						<string>MB-WN-2008</string>
						<key>model</key>
						<string>MacBook4,1</string>
					</dict>
					<dict>
						<key>Desc-Key</key>
						<string>CFG_XEON</string>
						<key>Description</key>
						<string>Tower-FL-2007</string>
						<key>model</key>
						<string>MacPro3,1</string>
						<key>restart-actions</key>
						<dict>
							<key>cpu-p-state</key>
							<integer>0</integer>
						</dict>
					</dict>
No, I have no XEON!

And I see in my system.log

Dec 20 20:29:06 MacBookPro4-1 kernel[0]: ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin::start - waitForService(resourceMatching(AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement) timed out
Dec 20 19:29:16 MacBookPro4-1 kernel[0]: ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin::registerLPCDriver - WARNING - LPC device initialization failed: C-state power management not initialized

So this plugin has dependencies on AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement which I disable and AppleLPC that works.
Thus IntelSpeedStep by mercurysquad and GenericCPUPM by Superhai are not replacements for AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement?
Also I see that power management is not good. Is it a problem that sleep and shutdown don't work?

These devices are Host Controllers (class=0x060000) at ICH7 and ICH8. What about other chipsets?
A year ago I was trying to write here name of ICH8 but fails as well as many other testers. Why? Because of wrong AppleSMC or CPU name? Why Apple use only these names?

Looking at the plugin I have many-many questions. Collect, please, information around that!

One quick question :

If I am not wrong ,the warnings :

Dec 20 20:29:06 MacBookPro4-1 kernel[0]: ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin::start - waitForService(resourceMatching(AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement) timed out

Only started occuring after 10.5.6 update..They do not appear in 10.5.5 right ?
If so,will replacing the old(10.5.5) SMC plugin restore powermanagemnt features for mercurysquad's speedstep kext.

Slice,
How doe i see with ioreg if LPC is active ?
ioreg -l -w x|grep -i lpc
am i correct ?
