    But that's just wrong. First off, all distro kernels come with ACPI on, so
    the thing you're fixing is really just for somebody who compiles his own
    kernel in a particular (and unusual/strange) configuration, and you're
    making it _worse_ for everybody else.

    And you're blacklisting it without even understaning _what_ is wrong. I
    really think we should figure that part out first,
