I've read your blog post about SATA PM when it was fresh, saw your patches on LKML and thought: well, everything is on it's way. Also mentioned Panel Self Refresh and friends for i915 are slowly getting in mainline, so I thought we might get to a point, where power comsumption would get in a good state and that i should spend some time optimizing my Haswell notebook again. I tried but mostly gave up and thought I needed to wait some more time. Now I just learned your SATA patches were never merged, which makes me sad about pm in Linux again :(

I'm just a user, no expert at all, but If there is a possibility to give mainlining that patches another shot, i would be absolutely thankful.

Keep up the good work Mathew, it's really appreciated. You solved a lot of problems for us Linux users! :)
