If it's the rule, then OK. This is not really important as security 
fixes or data losses. It's just part of "useless wakeups" hunt. I try to 
eradicate those behaviour, in order to have a really efficient server: 
less wakeups, less wasted watts. Or more services at the same time.
So, unfortunately for me, I have to admit than it is not important 
enough to be included only in Debian. I'll have to wait for inclusion in 
upstream then.

Thanks for your answer!
