           Summary: [dpm] rs880: Power usage doesn't drop with dpm=1

          Severity: normal
    Classification: Unclassified
                OS: All
          Reporter: suse at kabelfunk.de
          Hardware: x86 (IA32)
            Status: NEW
           Version: unspecified
         Component: Driver/Radeon
           Product: xorg

My laptop (Lenovo Edge 11) has the Mobility Radeon HD 4200 Series chip (RS880M) 
(windows says it's a HD 4225)

It consume with fglrx ~16W. (kernel 3.4.47)
With radeon (kernel 3.11-rc2) and power_profile=low ~20W
With radeon.dpm=1 (kernel 3.11-rc2) ~20W

linux-7goe:/home/dom # echo battery
linux-7goe:/home/dom # echo low>
linux-7goe:/home/dom # modprobe ec_sys
linux-7goe:/home/dom # cat /sys/kernel/debug/dri/64/radeon_pm_info 
uvd    vclk: 0 dclk: 0
power level 0    sclk: 20000 vddc_index: 1

The fglrx still uses ~4W less than radeon.dpm=1

It would be great when radeon.dpm=1 uses as less power as the fglrx driver.
