    Phoronix: ASPM Kernel Power Fix Won't Land Until Linux 3.3

    For those still wondering about the patches that appeared last month to mimic the power management behavior of Windows within the Linux kernel as a proper fix to the well known ASPM Linux kernel power regression, here's an update on the matter...

    I'm surprised this isn't applied to all the kernels in a point release. It genunely is a regression fix

    The original commit that caused this problem was also "just a fix", and see where it got us.

    Well, I am rather happy here with my system and I use pcie_aspm=force on all machines w. PCIE without hassles. Still it would be nice to have it fixed in Kernel but maybe devs want to check out faulty hardware first to blacklist it. Otherwise people might end up with strange results with the next official kernel.

    It's always astonishing to me how much hardware bugs/flaws become visible and public during FOSS driver development.

    Aww, that's too bad, so it definitely won't make it to Plasma Active Two... Ah well, I guess I can always use a workaround as well, for the time being.

    Can you believe that in the meantime douches like this one pop up here and there? http://www.fewt.com/2011/09/about-ke...sion-myth.html
