Yes, it returns HPET. And the sysstat reports more or less those numbers =
of interrupts. So this has been sorted out. Now my machine is running =
PC-BSD and looks stable (more tests needed).
About the power consumption issue, I've just rebooted into Linux and =
tested with the "vesa" xorg driver. Same power consumption as =
Free/PCBSD. So definitely a GPU powersave issue. I just hope that xorg =
will support my video card soon.
Do you think that your patch will be a part of 9.1 final release?=20
Meanwhile, thank you very very much for your help.=20
