2016-11-18i7300_idle: Remove this driverLen Brown1-1/+0
In preparation for removing the idle_notifier, remove its only user, the i7300_idle driver. i7300_idle was deployed in 2008 to reduce idle memory power on systems using the i7300 chipset. The driver worked by throttling the fully-buffered DIMMs during idle periods using the IOAT DMA engine. The driver ran only on the i7300 chip-set, and no other hardware has used this mechanism. The driver no longer has a maintainer. Removing this driver will increase idle power on i7300 systems when they run the new kernel without the driver.

2010-05-28intel_idle: native hardware cpuidle driver for latest Intel processorsLen Brown1-0/+1
This EXPERIMENTAL driver supersedes acpi_idle on Intel Atom Processors, Intel Core i3/i5/i7 Processors and associated Intel Xeon processors. It does not support the Intel Core2 processor or earlier. For kernels configured with ACPI, CONFIG_INTEL_IDLE=y allows intel_idle to probe before the ACPI processor driver. Booting with "intel_idle.max_cstate=0" disables intel_idle and the system will fall back on ACPI's "acpi_idle". Typical Linux distributions load ACPI processor module early, making CONFIG_INTEL_IDLE=m not easily useful on ACPI platforms. intel_idle probes all processors at module_init time. Processors that are hot-added later will be limited to using C1 in idle. Signed-off-by: Len Brown <len.brown@intel.com>
2008-10-21i7300_idle driver v1.55Andy Henroid1-0/+2
The Intel 7300 Memory Controller supports dynamic throttling of memory which can be used to save power when system is idle. This driver does the memory throttling when all CPUs are idle on such a system. Refer to "Intel 7300 Memory Controller Hub (MCH)" datasheet for the config space description.
