System idle test done for 74 minutes.
After boot and after the system settles down for a couple of minutes,
Processor package power is constant at 3.7 Watts. (great)
Not worth a new graph to show a flat line.

V7.3 average package power = 3.68 Watts.
V7 average package power = 3.68 Watts
V7.2+ average package power = 4.06 Watts (+10%)

Thanks. I used this git branch this time and for the first time.
Much easier.
