the problem is solved; the reporting is not. 2.6.23-rc also reports the
timers as "deferred" so that powertop can skip them (and version 1.8
will do just that).


If you see many wakups from this then you have even more other ones..
since ondemand wakeups only happen now if something else wakes the cpu
up anyway.

I am on x86_64 (non tickless yet) so that explains it.
