Subject[BUG] New Kernel Bugs
This is the listing of the open bugs that are relatively new, around
2.6.22 and up. They are vaguely classified by specific area.
(not a full list, there are more :)

The good part is that reporters of the bugs below are still around and
haven't dissipated, or disposed of their hardware, so it is a good
time to get the bugs.
Those bugzillas that have been started as regressions on Rafael's list
are not mentioned here so far, since they are being tracked as new
regressions already.

It would be appreciated if the corresponding maintenance team could take a
look, close off any which are fixed and see if they can fix any which aren't.

NOTE: when replying to this email, please add the bug number to the Subject in
the form [Bug 1234] so that bugzilla will capture the discussion.


System does not load without acpi=off ide=nodma noapic

ACPI Error attaching device data
Kernel: 2.6.24-rc2

/proc/acpi/battery displays Incorrect voltages

PATA scan: ACPI Exception AE_AML_PACKAGE_LIMIT... is beyond end of object
Kernel: 2.6.24-rc2
(Tejun: calling _GTF without calling _STM first. _GTM doesn't have any
prerequisite (it can't). Can someone familiar with ACPI tell me why the method
is failing? At any rate, libata should work fine regardless of ACPI failures.
Maybe it's time to start blacklist to skip ATA-ACPI for some boards to avoid
those annoying messages during boot)
