Comment 4 Prarit Bhargava 2007-07-18 13:30:02 EDT
The code base in RHEL5.1's drivers/acpi/events was heavily modified & updated to
the most recent upstream version by BZ 223290.  That modification incorporates
this fix.

Please contact Hitachi's on site representative, Hideo Aoki (haoki@redhat.com)
for details in obtaining a 5.1 kernel.

Sorry -- last comment was erroneously marked private.  Un-privating comment.

There appears to have been some IT & BZ breakage.

There are two ITs and several BZs that need to be fixed/updated, and some
RHKL submits need to be cleaned up.
1.  IT 124256 should not be linked to 223290 even though it is _part_ of what
is needed but is not the exact patch that is needed.

2.  Luming Yu's (luyu@redhat.com) post

[RHEL 5.1 PATCH] BZ 223290  ACPICA: _CID support for PCI Root Bridge detection.

should be

BZ 230742

3.  The status of 230742 needs to be in some QA state to match that of 223290.

Doug has informed me that RH QA cannot QA this issue -- it requires a manual
undocumented procedure that requires the "right" system, the "right" firmware,

IMO, this should be PARTNER_QA and Doug has verified that this functions

4.  IT 124256 references BZ 243663 which was closed as a dup of 223290.
It should be a dup of 230742. (Prarit's note: This was closed as a dup of
223290 based on Luming's RHKL post)

5.  223290 should not be ON_QA.  There are TWO patches required for this
support and only one of them (BZ 230742) is in RHEL5.1.

7.  Management has pushed 223290 support to RHEL5.2.
