:The patch brings in the latest acpi_cpu(4) code from FreeBSD adapted for
:DragonFly and our (old) acpica. This allows modern CPUs to use higher C
:states than C1 which as result makes a laptops with these CPUs run MUCH
:cooler (tested and measured ;).
This looks great, Hasso. I agree re: ACPI-based power handling. It
never worked right and isn't used for SMP anyway (there is no working
idle hook for SMP). A framework based on load and explicit throttling,
instead of idle-throttling, is the better way to go anyway.
