BUG REPORT: 5.15.0-83-generic and 5.15.0-83-lowlatency kernels limit CPU minimum and maximum frequency

Zorin OS 16.3, AMD Ryzen 5 5625 U CPU (Zen 3), 64 GB RAM, ZFS file system, 3 mirrored drives each for bpool and rpool.

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: 4294.55 ms.
  hardware limits: 1.60 GHz - 2.30 GHz
  available frequency steps: 2.30 GHz, 1.80 GHz, 1.60 GHz
  available cpufreq governors: conservative, ondemand, userspace, powersave, performance, schedutil
  current policy: frequency should be within 1.60 GHz and 2.30 GHz.
                  The governor "conservative" may decide which speed to use
                  within this range.
  current CPU frequency is 1.60 GHz (asserted by call to hardware).
  cpufreq stats: 2.30 GHz:0.26%, 1.80 GHz:0.43%, 1.60 GHz:99.32%  (888)

Same exact symptoms as here:

AMD came out with a new, easier to enable amd-pstate driver but I'm not sure if that's what's used in this kernel.

I cannot disable or blacklist acpi-cpufreq no matter what I do, so amd-pstate cannot pick up the CPUs to regulate them (I tried using the old methods as described in that post above, and the new suggestions from AMD for their new driver).
