Our power consumption is worse than under other operating systems
is almost entirely because only one of our three GPU drivers
implements any kind of useful power management.

Moving 'policy' into user-space has been an utter failure, mostly
because there's not a single project/subsystem responsible for
getting a good result to users. This is why I resist "policy should
not be in the kernel" meme here.

"inline" is now a vague, pathetic and useless thing. The problem
is that the reader just doesn't *know* whether or not the writer
really wanted it to be inlined.
If we have carefully made a decision to inline a function, we
should (now) use __always_inline. If we have carefully made a
decision to not inline a function, we should use noinline. If we
don't care, we should omit all such markings.
This leaves no place for "inline"?

Copy and paste is the #1 cause for subtle bugs.
