CVS commit: src/sys/external/intel-public/acpica/dist/include/platform
Module Name: src
Committed By: jruoho
Date: Sun Feb 28 12:57:11 UTC 2010
In preparation for partial modularization of the acpi(4) subtree.
* * *
XXX: The internal memory tracking of ACPICA, available when
ACPI_DBG_TRACK_ALLOCATIONS is defined, has been removed
This is due to the instability of the ABI of ACPICA.
If the memory tracking is enabled, ACPICA will insert a header
to each memory allocation. As a consequence, when ACPI specific
code is loaded as a kernel module and the running kernel has
been compiled with ACPI_DEBUG, the result is an instant panic.
This happens because of unaligned memory access when the code
tries to use ACPI_FREE for a buffer obtained via ACPI_ALLOCATE,
AcpiEvaluateObject(), and related calls.
If the involved memory statistics are required, a separate constant
ACPI_DEBUG_ALLOC is available in options(4) for ACPI_DEBUG kernels.
