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.
