the device, either "on" or "auto".
"on" means that the device is not allowed to autosuspend,
although normal suspends for system sleep will still
be honored. "auto" means the device will autosuspend
and autoresume in the usual manner, according to the
capabilities of its driver. "suspend" means the device
is forced into a suspended state and it will not autoresume
in response to I/O requests. However remote-wakeup requests
from the device may still be enabled (the remote-wakeup
setting is controlled separately by the power/wakeup
attribute).

During normal use, devices should be left in the "auto"
level. The other levels are meant for administrative uses.
level. The "on" level is meant for administrative uses.
If you want to suspend a device immediately but leave it
free to wake up in response to I/O requests, you should
write "0" to power/autosuspend.
Device not capable of proper suspend and resume should be
left in the "on" level. Although the USB spec requires
devices to support suspend/resume, many of them do not.
In fact so many don't that by default, the USB core
initializes all non-hub devices in the "on" level. Some
drivers may change this setting when they are bound.

Description:
Writing a device ID to this file will remove an ID
that was dynamically added via the new_id sysfs entry.
The format for the device ID is:
idVendor idProduct. After successfully
removing an ID, the driver will no longer support the
device. This is useful to ensure auto probing won't
match the driver to the device. For example:
# echo "046d c315" > /sys/bus/usb/drivers/foo/remove_id

Description: Discover and change clock speed of CPUs
Clock scaling allows you to change the clock speed of the
CPUs on the fly. This is a nice method to save battery
power, because the lower the clock speed, the less power
the CPU consumes.
There are many knobs to tweak in this directory.
See files in Documentation/cpu-freq/ for more information.
In particular, read Documentation/cpu-freq/user-guide.txt
to learn how to control the knobs.

What: /sys/devices/system/memory/soft_offline_page
Date: Sep 2009
KernelVersion: 2.6.33
Contact: [email protected]
Description:
Soft-offline the memory page containing the physical address
written into this file. Input is a hex number specifying the
physical address of the page. The kernel will then attempt
to soft-offline it, by moving the contents elsewhere or
dropping it if possible. The kernel will then be placed
on the bad page list and never be reused.
The offlining is done in kernel specific granuality.
Normally it's the base page size of the kernel, but
this might change.
The page must be still accessible, not poisoned. The
kernel will never kill anything for this, but rather
fail the offline. Return value is the size of the
number, or a error when the offlining failed. Reading
the file is not allowed.
