This assumes that a device is not present if acpi_evaluate_integer()
returns failure. But, from the ACPI spec, I think we should assume
the device is present if the function fails due to a failure in finding
_STA method.

I am attaching a patch to fix this. Please see it below.

Thanks,
Keiichiro Tokunaga


Name: cpu_hp_sta_fix.patch
Status: Tested on 2.6.9-rc2
Signed-off-by: Keiichiro Tokunaga <tokunaga.keiich@jp.fujitsu.com>
Description:
Fix the evaluation method of _STA in drivers/acpi/processor.c. If a processor
object does not have _STA, we should consider it as present.
