    Michael runs tests on a per commit basis so he should already know exactly which commit caused the issue...

    I sometimes wonder what the guys in charge of the kernel think. Do they think that battery powered devices are such a small segment of the market that they shouldn't bother with critical bug issues involving power consumption? ARRggggg. It is sad that I'm having to use windows when I'm on the go because of battery life under Linux is shrinking.

    Yes, probably he will do that. But why some of biggest Linux players don't do that. IBM, Google, RedHat? Where are you?

    Luckily the power regression on sandybridge hardware can be worked around easily by adding i915.i915_enable_rc6=1 to the kernel command line.
    See bug report for fedora 15: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=727579
