    SubjectRe: ACPI crash on lid close - SMP race?
    Hi, About this _DOS , I reported this problem a long time ago, which now
    is on
    Could you put yours comment on it ?

    On fedora stock kernel, appears one patch, (Now I see that you are the
    author :) )

    I tested your patch and it works for me !

    Disable ACPI video display switching by default

    -- mjg59

    diff --git a/drivers/acpi/video.c b/drivers/acpi/video.c
    index bac2901..93b1a9e 100644
