Hi,

I notice a regression report on Bugzilla [1]. Quoting from it:

> This commit improves power saving - it enables the kernel to achieve package C8. To achieve package C8, 3 Ubuntu VMD commits must be applied as well. The combined patch for the 3 Ubuntu VMD commits is attached (just in case). Package C8 lowers power usage on the laptop from 5.6W to 2.6W.
> 
> However, a side-effect of this commit is that CPU usage for irq/155-rtw88_pci has increased noticeably. This commit was introduced in 6.4-rc6. To confirm this commit is the cause, a branch was created from 6.4-rc5. This commit and the 3 Ubuntu VMD commits were applied. The resulting kernel was built and tested - it can achieve package C8 and exhibits the increased CPU usage on irq/155-rtw88_pci.

See Bugzilla for the full thread and attached proposed patch(es) that fix
this regression.

Anyway, I'm adding this regression to be tracked by regzbot:

#regzbot introduced: 26a125f550a3bf https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=217828
#regzbot title: correcting SUPPORTS_DYNAMIC_PS calculation for rtw88 increases CPU utilization
#regzbot link: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux-hwe-6.2/+bug/2025040

Thanks.
