Just discovered my ethernet card (which is disconnected) consumes
19 watts on my laptop.  when I do sudo rmmod r8168 after about ten
minutes the laptop is completely cool, normal consumption is something
like 11W for the whole machine now (was 24W before.)   Checked through
the db and it does not appear to be an existing bug.

ubuntu-bug r8168-dkms

It starts gathering information, then opens a blank window in chrome.
that's all.  never get to the bug entry form.
