    SubjectACPI patches updated (20021111)
    Date
    Hi all,

    New patches are up on sf.net/projects/acpi. Non-Linux-specific releases will
    be available by tomorrow evening at
    http://developer.intel.com/technology/iapc/acpi/downloads.htm .

    If you've been having problems with reading battery or other information
    being very slow, please try this release and report if problems persist.

    Regards -- Andy

    ----------------------------------------
    11 November 2002. Summary of changes for version 20021111.


    0) ACPI Specification 2.0B is released and is now available
    at: http://www.acpi.info/index.html

    1) Linux

    Module loading/unloading fixes (John Cagle)

    Other minor fixes

    2) ACPI CA Core Subsystem:

    Implemented support for the ACPI 2.0 SMBus Operation Regions.
    This includes the early detection and handoff of the request
    to the SMBus region handler (avoiding all of the complex field
    support code), and support for the bidirectional return packet
    from an SMBus write operation. This paves the way for the
    development of SMBus drivers in each host operating system.

    Fixed a problem where the semaphore WAIT_FOREVER constant was
    defined as 32 bits, but must be 16 bits according to the ACPI
    specification. This had the side effect of causing ASL
    Mutex/Event timeouts even though the ASL code requested a wait
    forever. Changed all internal references to the ACPI timeout
    parameter to 16 bits to prevent future problems. Changed the
    name of WAIT_FOREVER to ACPI_WAIT_FOREVER.
