SubjectRe: [PATCH 1/3] acpi: Rip out EC_FLAGS_QUERY_PENDING (prevent race condition)
Alan,

I don't think this is very good idea -- now every interrupt will add a new entry to workqueue,
and given the rate of this interrupt, it could be become quite long.

Your second patch is redundant if you add queue entry for each interrupt, and as it does not
require any investments into memory, I like it more.

Also, it is very cool to rip of things you don't care for, but that essentially reverts a fix done for 9998,
so at least, you should ask these people if you broke their setups.

Regards,
Alex.
