Yes, many of today's laptop BIOS are expecting that OS shouldn handle
this kind of things by executing the AML.  Good news, recently I wrote
accessing ioport stuff (roughly :-) and experimental code for
executing _PTS & _WAK method in kernel space.  On P2B based system, it
seems working fine :-)
Next step is implement accessing other bus spaces, physical memory
will be the target (and PCI config, SMBus...).  Can anybody help us on this?
