Linus' GIT tree 2.6.26-05752-g93ded9b shows this message:

There doesn't seem to be a g93ded9b in Linus' tree as of now. What tree are you on and does it perhaps already include the below patch?

This one:

i801_smbus 0000:00:1f.3: PCI INT B -> GSI 19 (level, low) -> IRQ 19
ACPI: I/O resource 0000:00:1f.3 [0x18e0-0x18ff] conflicts with ACPI
region SMBI [0x18e0-0x18ef]
ACPI: Device needs an ACPI driver

There is no equivalent in 2.6.26 or previous kernels.

[ snip ]

00:1f.3 SMBus: Intel Corporation 82801FB/FBM/FR/FW/FRW (ICH6 Family)

I believe this message in itself needn't be a problem but the code producing this warning isn't new...

Bjorn, this reminds me of the:


in Andrew's tree that I need to have my soundcard not fail due to the IO resource being claimed by PNPACPI. The fact that I needed it was new to 2.6.26 (but going back to 2.6.25 I all of a sudden also needed it there which made me conclude that some BIOS reconfig had occured).

ACPI isn't doing odd things I hope?
