Here's the most recent patches for ALPM. These are also located at:
These patches implement Aggressive Link Power management for AHCI
controllers. This feature is described in detail in the AHCI 1.x spec.
It provides power savings of anywhere from .5-1.5 Watts depending on
the system when it is enabled. (a graph demonstrating power savings
of this patch along with other power patches is located at
http://www.linuxpowertop.org/results.php for your enjoyment).
This patch is changed from the previous version in that it incorporates all
the feedback I've gotten on the patches to date. It changes the default
of the ahci driver to be max_performance rather than min_power, so userspace
will need to explicitly enable alpm via the sysfs interface when it deems
it an appropriate time to do this. In addition, the patch was changed to
allow either HIPM or DIPM as a prerequisite for enabling ALPM, rather than
just using HIPM.
