I removed bugzilla from cc - that only works if there's [Bug 1234] in
the Subject:.

I added linux-acpi to cc - this is an acpi problem.

What Justin is mysteriously referring to here is:

Could someone from acpi land please help here?

Justin, has this machine always had this problem or is it something
which earlier kernels handled correctly?

Thanks.
