    FWIW, I have not had good luck getting response for proposed core
    CPUidle changes either:

    http://lkml.org/lkml/2011/9/19/374

    Maybe it's time that drivers/cpuidle gets a maintainer. With lots of
    discussions of scheduler changes that affect load estimation, I suspect
    we're all going to have a bit of CPUidle work to do in the
    not-so-distant future.
