It is based on the (didle/dt) / (dtotal/dt) fraction computed from
kern.cp_time, which can take a while to ramp up. This is not easily
seen in a cursory reading of the code, as the fraction is computed in a
very roundabout way.

Hmm, it would be interesting to experiment with varying backlight
brightness based on system load :)
