    SubjectRE: [GIT PATCH] ACPI for 2.6.14

    This was filed against ACPICA 20050708
    which had a known problem with module-level code.
    The ACPI patch now contains ACPICA 20050902 which
    fixes that issue, and this system needs to be
    re-tested with the latest patch.

    > Summary: bug in ACPI crashes machine when reading

    The submitter confirmed that suspend to memory now works on this box.

    The remaining issue on this box is related to the EC and battery,
    and we're getting contradictory feedback on it.
    Frankly, I think we need broader testing, and
    pushing the latest ec code into 2.6.14 now is the best
    way to get that. If it turns out to be a mistake
    we can always turn back time and revert
    drivers/acpi/ec.c to the one that shipped in 2.6.12 --
    but the one in the latest patch has proven to be
    superior to 2.6.13 on other systems.

    Re: 2.6.13 regressions vs 2.6.12, I'm aware of these:
    smp c-states on Pentium 4 with hyperthreading causes big slow-down
    2.6.13 SMP kernel crash on boot at pm_idle_save()

    I saw lots of transient battery issues from 2.6.13-rc3
    until 2.6.13-rc6, but the ones I followed went away
    as of 2.6.13 final. Do you have your eye on others
    besides 4980?
