@angel chen: i can confirm that on intrepid with all updates applied,
the four 90-hdparm.sh scripts never come to hdparm, cause $DO_HDPARM is
always set to "n". just like you said, it really needs to be changed
otherwise the scripts won't fix load cycling on ac.
but as your change will finally result in $DO_HDPARM=y on my side, it
also does the same when running the script from battery.d. and AFAIK
laptop mode should be enabled on battery and therefore $DO_HDPARM should
be "n". the same should be the case with the script in start.d, when you
booting your laptop on battery. am i right?
