Hi Mike,

First let me thank all the ACPI developers for their excellent
work, ACPI is working just fine Thermal/CPU and battery wise in my Asus
M8300 notebook.

Reviewing your last commit on the timer problem, I was a bit suprised
to see so little chipsets defined as "good" (just PCI ID
0x71138086, rev > 0x03) and I wondered if the Intel 440MX chipset
(82443MX Power Management Controller) in my notebook wasn't also

I tried the timer_test at boot for about 15mins both with and without
AC power, no warnings. Then I changed the cipset probe code to
detect my device and it's been working without problems.

I've attached my pciconf -lv output, there's also my verbose
boot dmesg at http://devils.maquina.com/~gabriel/dmesg.acpi

Another thing I've been wondering is why can't I suspend my
machine to disk with ACPI or how do I do it.

Usually with APM enabled I just press The Fn+F1 key combination
to initiate suspend to disk, but this same key sequence doesn't
do a thing when under ACPI. Is this supposed to work yet?

I've also put my DSDT and ASL files at
http://devils.maquina.com/~gabriel/m8300.dsdt and

Thanks again,
