It seems that with the lower cpu utilization, main reasons to wake up 
according to powertop are:

  1) timer (~50%)
  2) saa7146(0)
  3) saa7146(1)

Whereas with higher CPU utilization its:

  1) flexcop-pci
  2) saa7146(0)
  3) saa7146(1)
  4) timer (<10%)

If that helps. Funny: taking out the flexcop card will not change load, 
but taking out the saa7146 cards will lower load on the other kernel
