It seems that I've confused some of you.
I'm NOT lover of ACPI and I don't want to do any
emulasion of ACPI on hpcmips.
I just said that ACPI's power management abstruction
is generic enough for hpcmis or any other platforms.
I meant "ACPI's power manage ment abstruction" for:
- System state difinitions
G3-G0 (off, soft off, sleeping, working)
- Device power state difinitions
- Sleeping state difinitions
- Processor state difinitions
- System event
power state transition diagram
- Battery management
- Thermal management
- hierachical name space
these are of universal application.
I didn't mean for:
- system map query (useing i386's "INT")
- descriptor table
- p-code and it's vrtual machine
they are ACPI dependent stuffs and you should not
apply them to other non-ACPI ready platforms.
Anyway, I will buy an i386 box which is ACPI capable to
play with ACPI for a while.
