Ahh! I now see C3/109, but I see some strange behavior. When on AC
power, only C1/1 and C2/104 are available, but cx_lowest is C3, even
though C3 is not available. If I switch to battery, C1/1, C2/80 and
C3/109 are available (???), but cx_lowest is set to C2. I find the Cx
value sets a bit odd, but the setting of cx_lowest appears to be a
bug, at least to me. I can manually set cx_lowest to C3 and I actually
use C3.

My suspicion is that there is either a race or a logic issue where
x_lowest is reset to the lowest value before the available Cx values
are set, so cx_lowest is always set the the lowest Cx state from the
previous power configuration. (This is a guess, but it fits what I am
seeing very well.)
