SubjectRe: Erroneous package power limit notification since kernel 2.6.39

I tried to git-bisect to find the root cause of this issue, but feel somewhat
lost after spending two evening without any usefull results.

I started with v2.6.38 as last known good and v2.6.39-rc1 as first known bad
version. My presumption was that bisection would now just happen between those
two versions - but somehow I ended up building 2.6.38.rc3,+ 2.6.38.rc7+,
2.6.38.rc2+ and 2.6.38.rc1+ during this process. Versions that are beyond the
starting range I intended to use. Or maybe I just haven't understood the whole
process yet.

Both of my bisection attempts ended near the same set of drm/i915 changes that
resulted in non-bootable kernels. Considering I'm using a Intel(R) Core(TM)
i7-2720QM with some Intel Sandybridge Chipset graphics those might sound
somewhat plausible to someone knowing the internals, but don't help me at all.

I'm not yet 100% sure, but I think the package power limit notification events I
see in /var/log/messages might coincide with the moment of my xorg startup. (But
those are just wall clock time estimations.) I will try some bootups without X
later this evening and report back if those package power limit notification
events also trigger without X running.

The "result" of my last git bisection attempt was:
