I boot with 2 cpus, acpi and everything working on ubuntu 10.04 using grub 1.99
compiled following these instructions:
and with this grub.cfg:

insmod efi_gop
menuentry "Ubuntu Linux Lucid 2.6.32-33-generic" {
    set root='(hd0,3)'
    linux /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.32-33-generic root=/dev/sda3 video=efifb ro splash
    initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.32-33-generic

But there's still a problem with this method (tried with various versions of
grub-efi): although it may seem the cpus do frequency switching allright, they
actually always work at their minimum speed. See:
