I think I can do this!

I tried this file (720x400 , 25 fps, h264)


LANG=ru_RU.utf8 DRI_PRIME=1 taskset -c 0 cin

taskset set cin to use only 1st CPU core.

DRI_PRIME=1 set cin to use my second (faster) GPU

Report errors and bugs to cpufreq at vger.kernel.org, please.
analyzing CPU 0:
  driver: acpi-cpufreq
  CPUs which run at the same hardware frequency: 0
  CPUs which need to have their frequency coordinated by software: 0
  maximum transition latency: 4.0 us.
  hardware limits: 1.40 GHz - 3.80 GHz
  available frequency steps: 3.80 GHz, 3.40 GHz, 2.60 GHz, 1.80 GHz, 1.40 GHz
  available cpufreq governors: ondemand, userspace
  current policy: frequency should be within 1.40 GHz and 3.80 GHz.
                  The governor "userspace" may decide which speed to use
                  within this range.
  current CPU frequency is 1.40 GHz (asserted by call to hardware).
  cpufreq stats: 3.80 GHz:15,48%, 3.40 GHz:5,42%, 2.60 GHz:6,62%, 1.80 GHz:20,96%, 1.40 GHz:51,52%  (458934)

so, I set cpu frequency to lowest possible value.

Next I splice video in two, add 1v/2a tracks to proj, move second half under first, set play
from very beginning, add faders to both video tracks ...play/fast play back/forward, mouse jumps ...

After some time it _may_ crash. But unfortunately not now :(

I already use 32-bit userspace (including Cin) on top of x86_64 kernel.

Well, GG have 128 CPU machine, hopefully this one powerful enough for exposing high end bugs :}
