kpowersave now working without HAL

I have recently finished a initial conversion of kpowersave to work
without HAL, instead relying on the brand-new TDE hardware library, which
in turn works straight off of the raw device nodes in /sysfs.

As this is the last remaining large HAL dependency in TDE, I would
encourage the TDE developers to compile and test on their hardware,
reporting bugs to this mailing list.

The source code is available here:

and can be obtained via:
git clone

If this works reliably, along with the udev-based media kioslave:/, I will
seriously consider removing the TDE HAL dependency completely for R14.0.
