On what kernel?

As far as the wakeups go, I thought this was fixed; see for example:
TAKE 977545 - xfsaild causing too many wakeups

on 2.6.27-rc8 with xfs mounted, and powertop 1.9, I don't see xfs up
very high at all:

Top causes for wakeups:
  29.4% ( 15.0)       <interrupt> : pata_sil680
   9.4% (  4.8)       <interrupt> : eth0
   7.8% (  4.0)            iscsid : __mod_timer (process_timeout)


   2.0% (  1.0)           xfsbufd : __mod_timer (process_timeout)
   2.0% (  1.0)           xfsaild : __mod_timer (process_timeout)
