Re: ACPI call for testing

  I reported the PR#41381, I have tried the patched kernel for
netbsd-5-0 on a HP 6515b. the system can boot up with ACPI enabled
this time, but it will suddenly be powered off after running some
minutes, like the power being cut off. when I power on the system
again, the fan will be running at the highest speed all the time, I
need to reboot the system, then it behaves normally again.
