You mean /proc/acpi/processor/../power specifically?

We only support a maximum of "C1" (esentially 'hlt').  Not sure how much
more of that information it needs.  I'm also not sure how we can report
the "current C" state. I guess we would need a file of our own.

If you can figure out what information the app needs, we can either dummy
it up, or figure out a way around it. :)
