    SubjectRe: [PATCH] i386 No-Idle-Hz aka Dynamic-Ticks 3
    I just borrowed a power meter to see (or not to see) real effects of
    dyntick. The difference between static 1000 HZ and dynamic HZ is much
    less than I expected, only a very little about noise. With dyntick
    disabled at 1000 HZ my laptop needs 31,3 W. With dyntick enabled I
    get 29.8 W, the pmstats-0.2 script shows me that the system is at
    35-45 HZ when it is idle.

    The power consumption difference between 250 HZ static and dyntick is
    below the noise, so maybe hardly worth all the struggle.

    Regards,
    Jim
