There we go about closed power management again. It has been clarified plenty of times that _ALL_ of the power management code is in the kernel and open sourced! The closed code only controls display backlight ON/OFF/dim states.
Although I won't claim that it is easy for developers to roll their own rootfs currently, it is fairly trivial to figure out what the closed components do and write replacements if somebody was that motivated. Just spreading misinformation is not going to get Nokia to open that code in a hurry. It will happen when it will happen, if it will happen.
