Description Luming Yu 2007-07-10 05:21:30 EDT
Description of problem:
HP and Hitachi machines have been implemented with SSDT's
that use the "OEMx" signatures.  But upon Load, ACPICA is rejecting
these tables because they are not using the "SSDT" signature.

ACPI Error (tbinstal-0134): Table has invalid signature [OEMx], must be SSDT...

Comment 1 Luming Yu 2007-07-10 05:22:37 EDT
upstream patch
Comment 2 Luming Yu 2007-08-09 02:25:38 EDT
Just checked the back port patch is in kernel-2.6.18-37.el5.src.rpm.

Comment 4 Don Zickus 2007-08-23 10:59:13 EDT

In regards to comment #1, I do not see that code in the kernel source, nor do I
see the patch in the kernel.src.rpm.  

Also, in the future, only the maintainers or managers should put bugzillas into
MODIFIED state.  As we have to do the accounting for it.

Putting back into ASSIGNED state until we can verify what patch fixed this issue.
Comment 5 Luming Yu 2007-08-30 02:50:01 EDT
I just posted the patch.
