I'll try to figure out, if this is present in <2.6.9 kernel an post again.

Comment 2 Sebastian K 2005-06-15 01:10:05 UTC
Ok, problem is present from 2.6.5 up to 2.6.12-rc6. Did not check <=2.6.4
Comment 3 Sebastian K 2005-06-23 05:21:33 UTC
Does also happen in current 2.6.12{.1}
Comment 4 Luming Yu 2005-07-04 22:50:56 UTC
Please try kernel option: acpi_serialize
Comment 5 Sebastian K 2005-07-05 00:13:58 UTC
Now I see only the following messages:

Comment 6 Luming Yu 2005-07-05 00:29:00 UTC
what about battery status with that option?
Comment 7 Sebastian K 2005-07-05 03:56:48 UTC
output is the same

Comment 9 Sebastian K 2005-07-30 04:33:42 UTC
Tested 1.6.13-rc4 today.
It additionally displays the following:
...
acpi_battery-0208 [28] acpi_battery_get_statu: Error evaluating _BST
osl-0958 [25] os_wait_semaphore : Failed to acquire semaphore[de7a1c00|1|0], AE_TIME

>> acpi-ec-0135 [26] acpi_wait_ec  : result = -512
>> acpi_ec-0135 [26] acpi_wait_ec  : result = -512

Booting with 'acpi_serialize' seems to fix something now. I only see the
following messages:

osl-0958 [25] os_wait_semaphore : Failed to acquire semaphore[de7a1c00|1|0], AE_TIME

Comment 10 Luming Yu 2005-07-30 06:05:15 UTC
Please test ec_polling patch at http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=4665
Note: boot kernel with ec_polling option

The "acpi_wait_ec  : result = -512" message is no longer shown.
Comment 12 Len Brown 2005-08-03 19:39:02 UTC
FYI, the latest patch in bug 4665 sets 2.6.13-rc5 to ec polling mode by default.
This should give the same as the "ec_polling" results above.
Comment 13 Luming Yu 2005-08-21 01:14:53 UTC
boot kernel with option acpi_serialize , and ec_burst=1 should fix this 
problem. If not, please reopen the bug
Comment 14 Sebastian K 2005-08-24 01:33:35 UTC
booting with acpi_serialize and and ec_burst=1 gives me the following:

osl-0958 [25] os_wait_semaphore : Failed to acquire semaphore[de7a1c00|1|0], AE_TIME

Comment 15 Luming Yu 2005-08-24 01:35:38 UTC
what about battery?

ec_burst=1"
Comment 17 Luming Yu 2005-08-24 07:04:20 UTC
the battery status looks good. 
Please also make sure you have latest ec code. Just grep dmesg to find if 
there have  "burst-mode-ec-10-Aug"
Comment 18 Sebastian K 2005-08-24 23:29:28 UTC
tested 2.6.13-rc6 + acpi-20050729-2.6.13-rc6.diff
booting with "acpi_serialize ec_burst=1" still gives me
osl-0958 [26] os_wait_semaphore : Failed to acquire semaphore[de7a1c00|1|0], AE_TIME
Comment 19 Luming Yu 2005-08-24 23:56:51 UTC
  Acctually "[de7a1c00|1|0], AE_TIME " is not an error. If you don't like it, 
I will make a patch to suppress it. 
  If you still have other problem, please describe them.

Thanks
Luming
