I tried a few with unigine valley and cinebench benchmark.

Totally no difference on scores, no dpc latency difference also.

But it is effective for turbostat when pc is in idle:

at default value turbostat reports ~35w (cores of vm all time around 1.5ghz)
at 0 turbostat report 20w (cores of vm around 300-400 mhz (6% busy)

Did not try "real gaming" for the moment. Did this remotely...

I don't know what halt_poll_ns does, but wouldn't setting it to 0 disable it and is disabling it bad?

So, what does halt_poll_ns do anyways?

Kernel 4.5.2 [1] addresses this issue and reduces the default value for halt_poll_ns. I haven't compiled the kernel yet, but it should be the safest value I suppose.
