    Using your logic, you never want to put your CPU into C2 power-saving state
    instead of C3 or C4. Which is ridiculous. There are technical reasons why
    you want to put devices into different power-saving states. E.g. wakeup
    latency, ability to receive wakeup signals, snooping and so on.

    In addition, your patch breaks pcmcia / pcmciautils which already uses
    numbers (which I already had to change from "3" to "2" before...).
