    SubjectRe: Linux 2.6.23-rc4: BAD regression

    Len? Should we just revert it?

    That commit has been very painful. First it lost all registration of the
    query methods, and now this.

    Daniel - can we please have a before/after dmesg on your machine,
    preferably with ACPI debugging enabled? And for ACPI stuff, it usually
    does help to fill in a bugzilla entry, since the ACPI people actually do
    track things there...
