Description of problem:
I have ASUS M6R laptop (http://www.fi.muni.cz/~kas/m6r/), and the stock
kernel in FC5 cannot use ACPI functions.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot the default FC5 kernel on ASUS M6R
2. run ls /proc/acpi/battery
the directory is empty (as well as some other ACPI directories)
the directory should contain battery status/info files, the rest of the ACPI
interface should work.
dmesg output attached (see the ACPI AE_TIME errors)
I think this is kernel.org bug #6111
(http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=6111) - at least when I compiled
vanilla 2.6.16-rc6 it did not work as well, and after adding the patch mentioned
in that bug it works correctly.
