I 'think' I have a patch ready that does what you're asking, but I
will fully admit that I don't completely grasp what's going on.

I'll submit it as an RFC, but I am not even sure I understand what to
put into the description, so if you're OK with reviewing the RFC, feel
free to mark up the actual commit message as well.

From what I can see, the changes haven't negatively impact stuff. I
didn't see the power consumption go up before, so I am not sure I can
replicate your findings.

It'll be posted shortly.
