SubjectRE: [patch] 2.4.x ACPI updates
Date
From
The ISO_8859_1 acute accent, u with diaeresis, and registered sign, have been in Config.info since Feb 2002.

Andy's tools seem to have extended them to 16-bit characters during a merge. A "minor gaff"? Okay, I guess that's fair. He promises that he doesn't know how to type a latin capital A with a circumflex on his keyboard;-).

Moving on... Is the fix to restore the 8-bit characters, or use 7-bit characters?

Thanks,
-Len

Bug Intel, not me.

I personally think they shouldn't be changing non-ACPI-related
Configure.help entries at all, and what you point out was one of the
minor ACPI gaffs I mentioned to Marcelo and Alan.
