SubjectRE: 2.6.0-test2 on Dell PE2650, ACPI_HT_ONLY strangeness
Date
From
You're right.

This was an ill-fated attempt at backwards compatibility.
I removed acpismp=force in an ACPI cleanup a short time ago, and it
should
hit the tree via the ACPI maintainer after Andy returns from vacation.

Cheers,
-Len
