Thanks for this, I have tested it on ODROID-U2.

I don't have any equipment to measure the power usage, but after
offlining CPUs 1,2,3 via sysfs "online" file, a printk I added
confirms that the system is going to enter aftr mode, and system
stability seems as good as ever.

Is there any automatic way that the cpus should be offlined, or is the
intention that it must be done "by hand" like this?

Thanks,
Daniel
