Detailing The Idle Loop Ordering Problem & The Power Improvement In Linux 4.17
Taking place yesterday through tomorrow is the second annual OSPM Summit in Pisa, Italy. The OSPM summit is about power management and scheduling within the Linux kernel. Today is when Wysocki and Ilsche took the stage to talk about this CPU idle code situation.
Fortunately, the OSPM event is being streamed on YouTube for those wishing to learn more about this work from the comfort of your own home or office.
I will have up some more Linux 4.17 kernel power consumption tests in the coming days further looking at this corrected behavior.
