Linux Kernel Power Bug Is Fixed

Anonymous Coward writes | more than 2 years ago

Linux 3

An anonymous reader writes "The Linux kernel power bug that caused high power usage for many Intel Linux systems has finally been addressed. Matthew Garrett of Red Hat has devised a solution for the ASPM Linux power problem by mimicking Microsoft Window's power behaviour in the Linux kernel. A patch is on LKML for this solution to finally restore the battery life under Linux."

They can't be any more idiotic than the unremovable sourceforge.net ad currently hogging screen space on Slashdot's front page and trying to push Windows software at me. (And yes, I have the "Ads Disabled" box checked)

This patch reworks how the kernel decides whether to enable/disable the PCI-E ASPM support. Due to the lack of documentation from Microsoft and others, the thinking was that hardware did not support ASPM unless it was advertised by the BIOS, but that may actually be wrong.

And people expect this same cabal not to conduct themselves in the same manner w.r.t. UEFI? Seriously?
