Description drago01 2008-03-21 09:19:02 UTC
The patch "linux-2.6-acpi-fix-sizeof.patch" breaks acpi-cpufreq on my laptop. It has been backported to fedoras 2.6.24 kernels (now removed again due to this bug). I was asked to report it here. 
See: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=436959#c17 (starting from this comment). 
I will attach some debug infos after submitting this.

By break acpi-cpufreq I mean it fails to load with "no such device" and the cpu stays at max clock. I hope the infos provided are enough if not feel free to ask for more.

what is "linux-2.6-acpi-fix-sizeof.patch"?
Comment 10 Lin Ming 2008-03-24 18:10:54 UTC

it's the patch at Bug 9558 #33
Comment 11 Len Brown 2008-03-24 21:24:35 UTC
The offending patch from bug 9558 was not included upstream.

Unclear why it was included in fedora before it hit
upstream or even the -mm tree, maybe that was a mistake.

So this isn't an upstream regression, but rather it is feedback
on the patch proposed for bug 9558.
Closing as a duplicate of bug 9558.
