That's a bad solution for users, this is meaningless tracking of a
device whose driver is actively managing the link bandwidth for power
purposes. There is nothing wrong happening here that needs to fill
logs. I thought maybe if I enabled notification of autonomous
bandwidth changes that it might categorize these as something we could
ignore, but it doesn't. How can we identify only cases where this is
an erroneous/noteworthy situation? Thanks,
