I like intel_pm.c
I don't have an opinion yet on 1 big commit or many small commits.
I'd like if you made a description not just of what has been moved, but
what belongs in this file (as a comment in the .c file).
Also in the bikeshed category:
I don't feel like FBC belongs here.
I also don't know about display watermarks, and certain fifo things.
Similarly with fifo related stuff, some may belong, some may not - I
haven't actually looked at the patch.
Anyway, when/if danvet deals with this, I like the idea very much so
