Hi Steve , marshall,

I tried PM kernel (both .29 and .38) on my Overo Fire with Palo35 expansion board. 

It consumed almost 3W@5V. 

And I also tried sleep while idle and DVFS(slowing down the cpu), but unfortunately there is nothing change with the power consumption. 

Can you give me some suggestion on that?
And do you know the typical idle power consumption with pm kernel on Overo fire with palo35 ?

Thank you.

Yiwei

yeah, what I thought. tx.
(a modification to do it could be very easy: a 0.1 ohm connected to one
of the ADC. That's what the BeagleBoard does)

   again, thanks!
