While I understand your goal to reduce patchcount in FC kernels the DSDT
initrd patch is IMHO not a feature but a facilitator to fix DSDT bugs
and easily test the fixes. I have an Acer laptop and the DSDT in FC4's
2.6.12-1447 has a pretty annoying battery bug that fills up the console
and /var/log/messages. Afaik it only takes about three tweaks like
s/Z00I/Z001 to fix it. That's a few minor changes that requires me right
now to patch the FC4 kernel src.rpm and rebuild it. I have seen Len
Brown's feedback on this subject mentioned in Thorsten's post and I
respectfully disagree with him and it seems so do at least Ubuntu,
OpenSuSe and Mandriva. I hope you will include the patch in a future
FC4/Rawhide kernel release. RFE filed here:
