Kernel Bug Tracker – Bug 5370
Unexpected exception on Store of Device and ThermalZone elements of Package to Debug operation
Last modified: 2006-09-28 13:17:32 UTC
Most recent kernel where this bug did not occur:
The Linux kernel ACPI interpreter fails the following
AML test when it is compiled into a simulator. So if an
OEM BIOS includes this code, Linux would fail.
Steps to reproduce:
Run interpreter with the .asl demo code attached below.
Created attachment 6225 [details]
ASL code to reproduce bug.
Methods m005 and m006 of the attached demo program cause
unexpected exceptions when try to apply the Store-to-Debug
operation to the retrieved elements of Package which are
Device in case of m005 and ThermalZone in case of m006.
