I can't seem to find any benchmarks or testing of real-world power-savings from this patch.
The patch is, presumably, putting the processor into a deeper sleep mode since the power savings from just reducing the timer tick frequency is minimal (if the CPU is 99.5% idle then making it 99.9% idle isn't a big different).
