I think this fits the VL philosophy of efficient computing.

Code: [Select]
Cn          Avg residency (5s)  Long term residency avg
C0 (cpu running)        ( 9.4%)
C1                0.0ms ( 0.0%)                   0.0ms
C2                0.4ms (46.1%)                   0.4ms
C3                0.5ms (44.5%)                   0.5ms

Power usage (ACPI estimate) :  20.3 W (2.9 hours left)
No detailed statistics available; please enable the CONFIG_TIMER_STATS kernel option
This option is located in the Kernel Debugging section of menuconfig
(which is CONFIG_DEBUG_KERNEL=y in the config file)

Suggestion: Enable the CONFIG_USB_SUSPEND kernel configuration option.
This option will automatically disable UHCI USB when not in use, and may
save approximately 1 Watt of power.
I suggest enabling these options for later vl releases...for me powertop aint any use with this kernel (5.8 std gold)

AFAICT, those 2 options are either not considered stable or break other stuff. I think you'll have to roll your own on this.
