    Our most common use of this information is to capture it in bugreports
    (along with process lists, system/radio logs, memory stats, etc) as
    one additional piece of data used to diagnose a misbehaving device
    (most commonly to answer the "why does the battery seem to be draining
    too quickly?" question).
