    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
