Hi. I've migrated from the "stable" wmii(20080530 or similar) to development
version and I've noticed increased wakeups-from-idle when measured with
powertop. It used to be something like 13 wakeups, now its 40+.
I've tested simple X(without any wm) with xterm and I get 2 wakeups in this way,
so I guess it's not a problem with the rest of my system.

Also the weird thing is, powertop doesn't show any processes with many
wakeups. the largest event is hrtimer_start with 3.5 wakeups. If I sum up the
rest of what powertop shows I get something around 6 wakeups so there must
be either hundreds of little wakeups or there is something seriously wrong.

Is anyone else experiencing similar problem? Could this really be related to
wmii or is it something else?
