On the whole saving energy subject, is m0n0 able to take advantage of any
CPU power throttling states that might be supported on newer chips? At the
most basic level I'm thinking HLT command which nearly every CPU should
support, but how about the speedstep stuff on PIIIs? Or is it simpler just
underclocking CPUs in the BIOS if supported?
