Which chipset is involved here ? SB400/600 perhaps ?
No, it is probably much older and I am pretty sure that it is not chipset related, but related to the "Mobile" in the Mobile Sempron as this exactly seem to hit 3500 and 3600 Mobile Sempron CPUs.

I can't help much further because:
- I have not such a machine
- I don't know these parts. I hoped to get some hints to help these guys


Hi All,

I am still available to hack away :-) I would also like to get this bug resolved but I feel I am out of my depth with this problem. (Embedded PowerPC's are my toys)

As a quick test, I grabbed the 2.6.26 kernel and built it... but alas, it broke... well, from my ill-educated guess, it looked like acpid done something and the machine shut down.
