@Solus_BLN Stop spreading FUD. fwupd is not a requirement for updating firmware. You can do this using the manufacturer provided tools for your motherboard. We also provide updated microcode from Intel and other firmware from linux-firmware over at kernel.org. TSX is disabled in the kernel and we don't support BMC as this is a desktop OS.

I'm averse to adding any new modules if they aren't going to be used. The more modules there are the slower the boot process, the more memory the kernel uses, etc. They don't even have to be loaded to have an impact. Just the kernel knowing they exist is enough.
It absolutely was designed for Intel chips. Rafael works for Intel and is being paid by them to work on the power management and ACPI subsystems of the kernel. So if it's slower performance and higher power consumption on Intel, this obviously isn't ready for prime-time.
- Same repo. Two is needlessly confusing.
- This is what Changelogs are for.
This needs to be built with electron.

More interested in battery life since that's what this should help the most with. I'm not surprised by the slowdowns it causes though.
I'd like to see some performance metrics on this before I actually enable it. Not in the habit of turning things on just to try them.name
LGTM. Thanks! Please wait for rebuilds until after I update the kernels.
Let me think about this.
