    Actually I do not think that root sending SIGKILLs to kernel threads
    is demented... I tried to recover broken machine by SIGKILLing
    kacpid. It did not work, so I just reniced it to get machine back.

    PS: BTW it was evo n620c. There's something wrong with thermal
    handling after swsusp. Evo will not die by overheat, but it almost
    damaged machine it was standing on... ouch. Cover got deformed by
    heat (quite a bit), fortunately it returned to previous shape when it
    cooled down.

    People were complaining that M$ turns users into beta-testers...
