I send this as requested on the LKML.
Comment 2 Len Brown 2006-08-02 18:38:51 UTC
fix for this should be in ACPICA 20060721 --  it is a microsoft
compatibility fix...

will attach a test patch here.
Comment 3 Thomas Renninger 2006-09-24 06:28:31 UTC
This is the same problem as described in:
https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=189488

There is a patch added against 2.6.16 there in the end (It's from Bob, so this 
is probably how it will end in or already is in mainline).
This is not a compatibility patch, but was a bug in the ACPICA code as the 
package elements field was ignored.
Comment 4 Vladimir G. Ivanovic 2006-10-31 01:38:15 UTC
The patch is not available to mere mortals. (Novell denies access, even after
creating an account.) Please post the patch here.
