Yes, give me a few days to repeat the tests and write
it up properly. I am leaving town in an hour and for a day.

It'll be similar to this:

Oh, I already have some data, just didn't include it before:

Idle governor, teo; CPU frequency scaling: intel-cpufreq/schedutil;
Processor package power: 40.4 watts; 4.9 uSec/loop

Idle governor, mobile; CPU frequency scaling: intel-cpufreq/schedutil;
Processor package power: 12.7 watts; 19.7 uSec/loop

Idle governor, teo; CPU frequency scaling: intel-cpufreq/schedutil;
Idle states 0-3 disabled (note: Idle state 4 is the deepest on my system)
Processor package power: 36.9 watts; 8.3 uSec/loop
In my notes I wrote: "Huh?? I do not understand this result, as I had
expected more similar to the mobile governor". But I did not investigate.

Anyway, the schedutil test is the one I'll repeat and write up better.

... Doug
