Yes, the change of WORD to BYTE is not necessary with 10-CURRENT. I don't understand ACPI well enough to answer your followup. All I know is that there is some change in the ACPI parsing behavior between 9-STABLE (which triggers AE_AML_BUFFER_LIMIT in the broken _SRS method) and 10-CURRENT (which used to panic but after jhb's fixes now boots correctly). Could it be possible that _SRS is not being called at all with the new ACPI code? -- Benjamin Lee http://www.b1c1l1.com/
