SubjectRe: [PATCH 00/12] ACPI: processor driver vs. core
From
Date

Hi Alex,

Sorry for not responding on this one. Just finished up looking through
all the patches in the series. It makes things very clean and patches
are neatly split up. Thanks for doing this.

Only thing I wanted to mention was, it would have been a bit cleaner to
keep _pdc stuff in a separate file. But, it is OK as you have done it as
well.
