ACPI and power management fixes for 3.15-rc4
- There are two bugs in the ACPI PNP core that cause errors to
be returned if optional ACPI methods are not present. After
an ACPI core change made in 3.14 one of those errors leads
to serial port suspend failures on some systems. Fix from
Rafael J Wysocki.
- A recently added PNP quirk related to Intel chipsets intorduced
a build error in unusual configurations (PNP without PCI). Fix
from Bjorn Helgaas.
- An ACPI EC workaround related to system suspend on Samsung machines
added in 3.14 introduced a race causing some valid EC events to be
discarded. Fix from Kieran Clancy.
- The acpi-cpufreq driver fails to load on some systems after a 3.14
commit related to APIC ID parsing that overlooked one corner case.
Fix from Lan Tianyu.
- Fix for a recently introduced build problem in the ppc-corenet
cpufreq driver from Tim Gardner.
- A recent cpufreq core change to ensure serialization of frequency
transitions for drivers with a ->target_index() callback overlooked
the fact that some of those drivers had been doing operations
introduced by it into the core already by themselves. That resulted
in a mess in which the core and the drivers try to do the same thing
and block each other which leads to deadlocks. Fixes for the
powernow-k7, powernow-k6, and longhaul cpufreq drivers from
Srivatsa S Bhat.
- Fix for a computational error in the powernow-k6 cpufreq driver
from Srivatsa S Bhat.
