How accurate is this tool? I saw that hald-addon-cpuf (which I assume is
short for ...-cpufreq), more precisely in "queue_delayed_work_on
(delayed_work_timer_fn)" stood for a lot of wakeups, so I killed it. Yet it
keeps running up and down the lists...

Apart from that, most of my time seems to be spent in i945 interrupts, but I
guess those are needed for my display somehow. :-)
