[Bug 30557] cpu idle time in /proc/stat wrong

Public bug report changed:

It's the latest dapper kernel:

Linux r200 2.6.15-15-386 #1 PREEMPT Thu Feb 9 19:41:22 UTC 2006 i686

But I must correct myself:

The cpu idle time is really increasing about 100 ticks per second, but the system is behaving properly.  2 1/2 to 3 hours battery life is normal for this r200.
Depends on what I'm doing. On Windows it's just 2 to 2 1/2 hours of working time on battery.

I can determine the high load of my cpu, because the machine itself
turns on cpu fan. On Windows this fan is running 75% times more often
then with Ubuntu Linux.

Only during dist-upgrades (while it's preparing and setting up the
packages) I can see a higher increase of the cpu.
