Re: Custom DSDT Table in the fedora kernel at boot time



I read these comments but they are from year 2004 and 2005. And the 
propoced patch was in some of the 2.6.25-rc versions.

This is not an extra functionallity but the only option (for some 
of us) to run linux on our laptops. The ACPI code is quite 
difficult to play with, so I don't see any "nightmare waiting to 
happen" here. If at the end there are so many bug reports connected 
with DSDT, then just drop the patch again.

I don't see that much bug reports on opensuse, ubuntu and mandriva 
complaining about a kernel panic based on broken dsdt. Maybe Dave 
Jones should reconsider his opinion about it. Or at least try to 
explain to the notebook producers that they should test their bios 
to work with linux, too.

Fedora is supposed to be "on the bleeding edge". so i really don't 
see any reasons against (at least trying to) inserting this patch 
in some RCs. Lets see what'll happen. it is always possible to 
revert the patch.
