That's on minimum power; the CPU is put in nap mode to conserve energy,
and this means you can't have any DMA-capable hardware active at that
We should perhaps make that a config option, controlled by a flag in
/etc/default/power (or /etc/sysconfig/power for LinuxPPC). If you send me
a diff for pwrctl it'll be in -3.

Well, my 0.7 package is built against potato libraries basically. So were
0.6 (pmud was packaged while potato was in freeze). I don't see why it
shouldn't work with potato.
