Subject[34-longterm 116/247] platform: x86: asus_acpi: world-writable procfs files
Date
From: Vasiliy Kulikov <segoon@openwall.com>

-------------------
This is a commit scheduled for the next v2.6.34 longterm release.
If you see a problem with using this for longterm, please comment.
-------------------

commit 8040835760adf0ef66876c063d47f79f015fb55d upstream.

Don't allow everybody to change ACPI settings. The comment says that it
is done deliberatelly, however, the comment before disp_proc_write()
says that at least one of these setting is experimental.
