Yes it is usable... I've tried it weeks ago and it basically said me
that gpsd was using really so much cycles also if the GPS was off,
that's why I generally kill it if I've no GPS need.

But it was saying also many other things that kernel devs should
understand better than me. Will it be considered for optimizing the
power usage?
