This entry is being used for tracking a regression from 2.6.36. Please don't
close it until the problem is fixed in the mainline.

patch: poulsbo sub driver selects INPUT
Yes, we can fix it by the one-line patch attached.
But IMO, the real problem is that poulsbo stub driver should not select ACPI video driver at all, because there is no dependency between these two drivers.
Yes, the build is fixed by the patch attachment above.
Unfortunately, I was trying to build a kernel with CONFIG_INPUT disabled,
and this STUB driver now makes that impossible, but I suppose that's a different problem.
This one can be closed.
