No, I think rc6 is still a much bigger win even on Arrandale (iirc >>1W
for rc6, ~0.5W for fbc best case). And yeah, there is the potential for
increased power consumption when fbc is enabled if a framebuffer that
doesn't compress very well continues to get re-compressed over a long
period of time.
