Description Péter, Soós 2003-11-20 11:22:08 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Opera/7.22 (X11; Linux i686; U)  [en]

Description of problem:
The DSDT (Differentiated System Description Table) often needs to be 
overridden because of broken BIOS implementations. If you want to use 
a customized DSDT you have to recompile the whole kernel as described 
on Intel's ACPI pages. But there is a kernel patch to make it 
possible to load DSDT from initial ramdisk (initrd).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel-2.4.22-1.2115.nptl

The kernel patch to load the DSDT from initrd (for kernel 2.4.22-1.2129)

I've been using this patch since long ago and it's really handy.
I've added to the src.rpm of kernel-2.4.22-1.2129 as patch 900 without any
problems.

I'd much rather see something worked out upstream with the ACPI
maintainers than take some new functionality which may eventually
differ from upstream.
