Hello list,

Can anyone please tell me if the patch from RedHat to prevent the NTP daemon 
to wake up every second has been or will be committed to a mainline release?
Patch was written as a response to the powertop program which identifies the 
top power consuming applications on systems.

RedHat patch to ntp:
http://cvs.fedora.redhat.com/viewcvs/*checkout*/rpms/ntp/devel/ntp-4.2.4-sleep.patch?rev=1.1

PowerTOP's description of NTP's

Thanks in advance.
