An anonymous reader writes "It appears that there's a big power management regression in the Linux kernel for the 2.6.38 and 2.6.39 development releases, including the kernel to ship with Ubuntu 11.04 next week. It's reportedly causing a 10~30% increase in power consumption on many laptop computers."

Why doesn't the title say Ubuntu linux kernel? (1)

I'm a bit unclear how they have proved that it isn't ubuntu patchset,
or if its something specific with the generic flavour used.

I'd like to at least see one other ubuntu flavour, and ideally a comparison to vanilla.
