SubjectRe: [lm-sensors] Could the k8temp driver be interfering with ACPI?

The DSDT code clearly can't touch the hardware itself - hardware access
is carried out by the kernel. If we can identify cases where ACPI reads
and writes would touch resources claimed by other drivers, that would be
a good starting point for working out what's going on.

Of course, this ignores the case where the DSDT just traps into SMM
code. That one is clearly unsolvable.
