Are there any good interfaces? Well, yes there are, but unfortunately, different groups have wildly conflicting definitions of what constitutes “good”. The Android developers swear by wakelocks, but wakelocks have not been warmly received by many in the Linux kernel community (see here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here). Many in the Linux kernel community swear by extensions to PM QOS, but the Android developers do not believe that these extensions are capable of replacing wakelocks — though these extensions might allow Android device drivers to be accepted into mainline, which would be very worthwhile in and of itself.
Hey, you asked!!! ;–)
