Subject[PATCH] ACPI / PM: Make it possible to ignore the system sleep blacklist
Date
From: Rafael J. Wysocki <rafael.j.wysocki@intel.com>

The ACPI code supporting system transitions to sleep states uses
an internal blacklist to apply special handling to some machines
reported to behave incorrectly in some ways.

However, some entries of that blacklist cover problematic as well as
non-problematic systems, so give the users of the latter a chance to
ignore the blacklist and run their systems in the default way by
adding acpi_sleep=nobl to the kernel command line.

For example, that allows the users of Dell XPS13 9360 systems not
affected by the issue that caused the blacklist entry for this
machine to be added by commit 71630b7a832f (ACPI / PM: Blacklist Low
Power S0 Idle _DSM for Dell XPS13 9360) to use suspend-to-idle with
the Low Power S0 Idle _DSM interface which in principle should be
more energy-efficient than S3 on them.
