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

As detailed in the bug report
https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=15886
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.

thanks,
Len Brown, Intel Open Source Technology Center
