Subject[PATCH 2.4.8-ac5] Another Sony Vaio laptop with a broken APM...
Hi,

This patch adds yet another Vaio laptop to the list of those
having the APM minutes left swapping problem.

However, the Vaio bioses list is getting bigger and bigger
and I wonder if there is _any_ Vaio laptop that gets this
item right. If not, we could just do a search on SYS_VENDOR /
PRODUCT_NAME strings, like the is_sony_vaio_laptop test...

Comments ?

In the meanwhile, Alan, please apply.

Stelian.
