SubjectWhat are rules for acpi_ex_enter_interpreter?
Hi Andrew,
ACPI was reporting no S* states on my machine (ASUS A7V) for some time
and today I finally got some time to debug it. Problem is that during
initialization namespace init calls acpi_walk_namespace without
interpreter lock held - but it is wrong - as you can see from stack
trace, acpi_walk_namespace can call down to acpi_ev_address_space_dispatch,
which can call acpi_ex_exit_interpreter - and this is fatal on unlocked
lock :-(

This points us to another problem - when acpi is compiled into kernel,
for some reason there is pending signal in thread doing ospm_busmgr and
ospm_system initialization, so it fails to acquire lock because of
down_interruptible fails... but does not print any message, just no
valid S states are found. When acpi is compiled as module, modprobe
hangs until you hit ^C - then it is converted to previous case - module
says OK, but did nothing in reality.

I did NOT verified other callers of acpi_walk_namespace... And there
is still some problem left, as although now S5 is listed as available,
poweroff still does nothing instead of poweroff.
Best regards,
Petr Vandrovec
