Werner, seems like
is worth a response.

|dirmngr is seen often in top of powertop results on a idle kde4
|system. Looking at strace, looks like dirmngr has select() timeout
|based loop. That is bad in power managment perspective. CPU can't
|dynamically sleep long periods when applications wake it up..
