- Description updates.
2018-12-06 - Ismail Dönmez <idonmez@suse.com>
- Run spec-cleaner
- Don't disable as-needed, it works now.
2018-12-04 - trenn@suse.de
- Add bash completion for cpupower command (from mainline submit)
A cpupower_bash-completion_for_cpupower_tool.patch
2018-10-16 - trenn@suse.de
- Fix static compilation and sysfs_read_file mess
A cpupower_fix_compilation_and_sysfs_read_file_mess.patch
2018-10-01 - trenn@suse.de
- Updating to latest 4.19(-rc6) kernel sources
Turbostat is increased to version 18.07.27 by this
Patches which got deleted because they are now mainline:
D    turbostat_decode_MSR_IA32_MISC_ENABLE_only_on_Intel.patch
D    turbostat_fix_man_perm.patch
D    x86_perf_fix_man_permissions.patch
2018-01-11 - trenn@suse.de
- Update cpupower to latest kernel version (version name 4.15, but
checked out against latest kernel tag 4.15-rc7. There will not
be important changes any more, maybe a fix).
- cpu online/offline fixes
- This is the first cpupower package (with updated version) which
includes x86_energy_perf_policy binary.
This is important for later package dependencies, namely tuned.
A cpupower_exclude_kernel_Makefile.patch
2018-01-09 - trenn@suse.de
- Add x86_energy_perf_bias tool
This is a tool which is, same as turbostat, located in kernel sources here:
A x86_energy_perf_policy-17.05.11.tar.bz2
A x86_perf_fix_man_permissions.patch
A x86_perf_makefile_fix_asm_header.patch
2017-10-20 - trenn@suse.de
- Provide rapl domain info (cpupower powercap-info cmd)
* Add: cpupower_rapl.patch
- Provide rapl power monitoring
* Add: rapl_monitor.patch
2017-10-06 - josef.moellers@suse.com
- Added missing references.
