SubjectRe: ACPI crash on lid close - SMP race?
From
Date
well, there is a bug report for this problem:
http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=11259

and there are some bug reports for a similar problem (system crashes on
lid close if _DOS=1, but on a UP platform).
http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=6001#c49

but unfortunately we haven't made any progress in this issue. :(

thanks,
rui
