    SubjectAPM related hardware locking


    I found that Linux 2.4.x got locking with apm.o and yenta_socket.o
    since yenta driver was there. But, someone has reported another apm.o
    related locking. I don't know about why this problem causes and who
    works for this.

    So, I want more infomations, i.e. situation, position, timing and so on.
    Tell me these if you know.

    I know a locking situation:
    * apm.o and yenta_socket.o are loaded and scan devices.
    * `cat /proc/apm` or something that causes calling apm_bios_call().
    -> hardware locking. Nothing except turn off with the power switch.

    Any infos welcome. Thanks.
