i know - in fact, i think it was this particular issue that made
me find the hw-module command  :-)

no sync'ing?  so how do you ensure your spare sup has the right config when it is needed? what process or procedure is followed?

power reserved != power used.  the system just ensures that the
right amount is reserved so it can be used, rather than not being
able to provide the juice.
