Linux 3.2 Is Still Looking To Be Power Hungry
Phoronix: Linux 3.2 Is Still Looking To Be Power Hungry
The PCI subsystem pull for the Linux 3.2 kernel was published on Friday evening. If you were hoping it would rework PCI-E ASPM (Active-State Power Management) to be more like the Windows implementation or for more PCI drivers to be setting the bits directly to support it (effectively white-listing drivers/hardware), it didn't happen yet...
so its not a kernel bug but a distri bug
Why does the Distries nut just set this kernel-flag by default if there are only 5-10 notebooks out there who dont have this feature?
