    But Windows XP is able to do the scaling properly. So how can it be a
    BIOS issue? While reading about the Foxconn BIOS fiasco that happened
    recently a kernel dev (forgot his name) stated that Linux tries to
    emulate Windows for ACPI operations.

    So I'm guessing this is a kernel bug.
