Sure, no problem.

Right. Bear in mind that, with respect to this, Linux and Xen are quite
different. Or at least, that's certainly true for scheduling... for
ACPI, there might be similarities due to the fact that ACPI support in
Xen is inspired to Linux one, but I'm no expert in that, so I don't
really know.

The point I wanted to make was, although some understanding on how
things work in Linux, in order to figure out what PowerClamp really
does, is necessary, start focusing on Xen ASAP, as that is your
target! :-)

Ok, that would be great.
