1.71 - Thu Jan 12 13:30:50 IST 2017 * Fix incorrect import of os.putenv * Merge pull request #74 from Coucouf/fix-os-putenv * Fix documentation on where we read battery capacity from * cpuhotplug: allow disabling specific cpus * Merge pull request #78 from aartamonau/cpuhotplug * runtime-pm: refactor listed_by_id() * wireless-power: Use iw and fallback to iwconfig if it not available * Prefer available AC supply information over battery state to determine ON_AC * On startup, we want to force the full execution of LMT. * Device hotplugs need a forced execution for LMT to apply the proper settings * runtime-pm: Refactor list_by_type() * kbd-backlight: New module to control keyboard backlight brightness * Include Transmit power saving in wireless cards * Don't run in a subshell * Try harder to check battery charge * New module: vgaswitcheroo * Revive bluetooth module. Use rfkill primarily. Also don't unload (incomplete list of) kernel modules

* Deal harder with broken battery states * On machines with 2+ batteries, determine states from all batteries * Limit status message logging frequency. Some machines tend to send ACPI events too often. Thanks Maciej S. Szmigiero * Try harder to determine power states. As reports have shown, the power_supply subsystem has had incorrect state reporting on many machines, for both, BAT and AC. * Relax conditional events where Laptop Mode Tools should be executed. This affected for use cases of Laptop being docked and undocked Thanks Daniel Koch. * CPU Hotplug settings extended * Cleanup states for improved Laptop Mode Tools invocation Thanks: Tomas Janousek * Align Intel P State default to what the actual driver (intel_pstate.c) uses Thanks: George Caswell and Matthew Gabeler-Lee * Add support for AHCI Runtime PM in module intel-sata-powermgmt * Many systemd and initscript fixes * Relax default USB device list. This avoids the long standing issues with USB devices (mice, keyboard) that mis-behaved during autosuspend
Important Bug Fix release. All users are advised to upgrade.
