And, when the periodic wakeups are faster than the refresh time of powertop, no, powertop won't help you find the crapplication. If you think that's acceptable, fine --- we'll see who wins in the marketplace, and who gets blamed for producing a crappy platform --- the incompetent application programmer, or the platform supplier.

Of course tools can be improved, but if someone decides to run sw which
is clearly under heavy development, i see little point in complaining
that it might not work as expected.
