SubjectRe: [ACPI] ACPI patches updated (20030109)

I have a Toshiba 3000-400 laptop, which previously needed a ACPI table
bypass for it to detect the battery power levels, which I have been
doing up to 2.4.17..

I compiled up the standard 2.4.20 and my bypass hack didn't work
anymore..

I downloaded the 20030109 patch and tried it out with 2.4.20, but the
compilation failed in

arch/i386/kernel/mpparse.c

I replaced the offending function by the one from the previous 20021212
patch and the 2.4.20 kernel compiled OK.

The patched 2.4.20 kernel now detects the laptop battery correctly along
with lots of other goodies that I'd not seen before..

Bye for now, and keep up the good work..

John
