thx for the report, yeah, sound like a regression. With that much of a
difference I'd suspect it's something that can consume a lot of power if
not sleeping properly, for example the CPU or the GPU. But that's just a
shot in the dark and it's hard to help here with debugging from a
distance (especially without a list of hardware components). With a bit
of luck tools like powertop might be able to debug this (check if the
CPU is sleeping well). But a 'git bisect', like already suggested
Gregkh, would be really the best to find the change that's causing this.

Ciao, Thorsten

#regzbot ^introduced: v5.14..v5.15
