    SubjectRe: [PATCH] ACPI: make acpi_idle Nehalem-aware
    This patch is kaput.

    As detailed in the bug report
    we should be able to fix some of these boxes
    by paying attention to an ACPI flag we didn't
    realize existed until yesterday.

    I'll follow-up with a new patch today.

    However, we'll still have issues with systems
    like the HP DL360 G6 which explicity set the
    flag to ask for BM_STS checking and configure
    the chipset such that BM_STS is active.
    That may require a BIOS fix, or we may
    have to run intel_idle on that box --
    since intel_idle ignores BM_STS always
    and instead relies on drivers to use pm_qos
    to register device latency constraints.
