With the latest kernel upgrade from 5.2.20-130 to 5.3.8-133, my laptop's idle power usage went from 10W to 28W. I've set the default boot option to the old kernel, but will this eventually get booted off when there's another kernel update? Is it correct that the suggested thing to do is to attempt to send a bug to part of the Linux kernel mailing list or pray that it magically gets fixed in a future kernel version (a likely possibility)?
Just wondering what other people have done in this sort of situation on a rolling release distro.
Edit: Also, if anyone else has this issue and is curious, I think it could be related to this.
