    perhaps i completely misunderstood what i was looking at but when i
    submitted a patch to remove "legacy power management," i wasn't
    referring to APM. i was talking about the PM stuff even *older* than
    that, that's listed as "Legacy Power Management API (DEPRECATED)"
    under the PM config menu.

    so, politics and scheduling aside, was that earlier patch a reasonable
    and correct way to do *that*?
