Description of problem:
Seems that since some time ago in Arjan's kernels, and now in the
kernel in rawhide, sonypi module is removed.  It's a quite stable
module IMHO and is really useful for us Sony Vaio laptop owners.  Is
there any reason (perhaps other than size constraints?) for not
providing that?

It has been in red hat 2.4 kernels, so removing it in a sudden...
thanks :).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. modprobe sonypi

Actual Results:  FATAL: Module sonypi not found.

Hi, you removed it again?  Is it broken somewhere?  Used to work great
for me and other Vaio users that I know.
