Will you please try the attached patch on the 2.6.28-rc2 and see whether
the issue still exists?
After the test, please attach the output of dmesg.


The following is included by the attached patch.
a. EC transaction is divided into several phases.
For example: EC write transaction
a. issue EC write command
b. wait until the input is empty and then write the internal
address
c. wait until the input is empty and write the data
d. wait until the input is empty. If it is empty, it indicates
that EC transaction is finished.
At the same time EC driver will be started in EC GEP mode. And when
there is no EC GPE confirmation for some EC transaction on some broken
laptops,the EC driver will be switched to polling mode. But EC GPE is
still enabled.

b. Some delay is added in the EC GPE handler on some broken BIOS.
The delay won't be added for most laptops.Only when more than five
interrupts happen in the same jiffies and EC status are the same, OS
will add some delay in the EC GPE handler. If the same issue still
happens after adding delay,the delay time will be increased.But the max
delay time is ten microseconds.

Thanks.
