Power management improvements in Jaunty

Registered by Martin Pitt on 2008-11-18

Think about changes and configuration options to further reduce power consumption:

 * Switch off wireless while ethernet is plugged in (suspend device, or rmmod)
 * userspace could ask user whether to turn off wifi/bluetooth while not really needed
 * explicit "low power/airplane" mode -> turn off USB, etc.
 * use laptop-mode more cleverly: don't flush writeback cache after fixed intervals, but wait until the disk has spun up anyway
