Subject[ACPI] 2.4.22, My bios is to old?
From
Date
Hi, 

I just updated $other machine to 2.4.22, and now i have several ACPI
tools screaming at me because /proc/acpi dosn't exist.
(it was running 2.4.21-pre1, it has aslo been running with several acpi
patches)

And then:
dmesg |grep ACPI
BIOS-e820: 0000000027fec000 - 0000000027fef000 (ACPI data)
BIOS-e820: 0000000027fff000 - 0000000028000000 (ACPI NVS)
ACPI: have wakeup address 0xc0001000
ACPI disabled because your bios is from 2000 and too old <- WTF?
ACPI: RSDP (v000 ASUS ) @
0x000f6580
ACPI: RSDT (v001 ASUS K7V 0x30303031 MSFT 0x31313031) @
0x27fec000
ACPI: FADT (v001 ASUS K7V 0x30303031 MSFT 0x31313031) @
0x27fec080
ACPI: BOOT (v001 ASUS K7V 0x30303031 MSFT 0x31313031) @
0x27fec040
ACPI: DSDT (v001 ASUS K7V 0x00001000 MSFT 0x0100000b) @
0x00000000
ACPI: MADT not present
ACPI: Subsystem revision 20030813
ACPI: Interpreter disabled.
PCI: ACPI tables contain no PCI IRQ routing entries

I assure you that this machine has been running with acpi enabled for
years without a problem. The latest bios is from "2000/08/04" according
to asus' website.

Is it me or is this check unwarranted? Or does it actually catch bad
bisoses?

PS. Keep me in the CC:
DS.
