SubjectRe: [PATCH] Fix oops in asus_acpi.c on Samsung P30/P35 Laptops

For some reason your patch doesn't even vaguely apply. Mozilla.

If we're going to print "unknown integer" then we surely should print out
what the integer _is_, no?

And yeah, this patch has been hanging around for far too long. It might be
in the acpi tree which Len is trying to get merged up (it has a few
git-related difficulties at present).



From: Christian Aichinger <Greek0@gmx.net>

For a while now asus_acpi is broken on samsung laptops (causes oopses on
module loading and kernel panic if compiled into the kernel).
