Description Christopher Brown 2007-09-30 14:29:41 UTC
Description of problem: Thinkpad ACPI component not loaded on boot.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): Current (F7) and devel

How reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot thinkpad
2. run lsmod
3. Note thinkpad_acpi not listed

Expected results: Thinkpad acpi module loaded on boot.

Additional info: This module move from drivers/acpi to drivers/misc in 2.6.22.
The reason for this being that the driver is not just ACPI stuff I believe. So
maybe there is a reason stuff in misc/ shouldn't be loaded. Anyway, I attach a
patch which really needs reviewing as I can't code my way out of a cardboard
box. Even though its a one-liner. Depressing huh?

This is fixed in later kernels by adding dmi-based aliases to load the module
