* [2.6.25-rc3] ACPI _PPC limiting processor speed...

My 2.2GHz [1] Thinkpad T61 is unable to get past 1.2GHz, seemingly
because of the _PPC ACPI objects [2].

Given that the _PPC object is different for both cores, is this more
of a BIOS bug or an ACPI interpreter problem? The problem was present
in 2.6.24-rc, 2.6.24 final and since.

BIOS is 7LETA9WW/2.09, so current - would any further information be
useful for debugging this problem, and would dumping the ACPI tables
be useful?

Thanks,
  Daniel

(cc linux-acpi)

If nothing happens, please raise a report at bugzilla.kernel.org, thanks.

I've raised this into a Bugzilla entry for tracking and history, and
dumped ACPI tables in binary and hex formats:

http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=10110

Let me know of anything else useful. If I get time in the next days,
I'll try find a previous working kernel and start bisecting for the
regression.

Thanks,
  Daniel
