[ 17/59] ACPICA: Fix regression in FADT revision checks

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


3.2-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Julian Anastasov <ja@xxxxxx>

commit 3e80acd1af40fcd91a200b0416a7616b20c5d647 upstream.

	commit 64b3db22c04586997ab4be46dd5a5b99f8a2d390 (2.6.39),
"Remove use of unreliable FADT revision field" causes regression
for old P4 systems because now cst_control and other fields are
not reset to 0.

	The effect is that acpi_processor_power_init will notice
cst_control != 0 and a write to CST_CNT register is performed
that should not happen. As result, the system oopses after the
"No _CST, giving up" message, sometimes in acpi_ns_internalize_name,
sometimes in acpi_ns_get_type, usually at random places. May be
during migration to CPU 1 in acpi_processor_get_throttling.

	Every one of these settings help to avoid this problem:
 - acpi=off
 - processor.nocst=1
 - maxcpus=1

	The fix is to update acpi_gbl_FADT.header.length after
the original value is used to check for old revisions.
