    SubjectRe: 2.6.25 regression: powertop says 120K wakeups/sec
    Date
    With the stable 2.6.25 release I still get a _massive_ amount of wakeups 
    (around 50k). Also the power consumption is a lot higher than with 2.6.24.5.
    I am using a Mobile AMD Sempron (32bit) on an nx6125 laptop (Gentoo).
    In 2.6.25 an "extra timer interrupt" appeared, which was not there in previous
    kernel versions.

    Power usage:
    2.6.24.5: ~12-15 W
    2.6.25: ~16-22 W

    Wakeups:
    2.6.24.5: 10-300
    2.6.25: 900-50000!!


    I thought the patch posted went into the stable kernel, but it does not seem
    to do anything for me. I have also tried 2.6.25-git3, but no changes.

    Here are some links to potentially useful files (idle, no WLAN):

    powertop 2.6.25: http://pastebin.ca/995548
    dmesg-2.6.24.5: http://pastebin.ca/995549
    powertop 2.6.24.5: http://pastebin.ca/995550

    If there is anything I can provide you with for debugging let me know.
