Phoronix: Intel Has 50 Patches For ACPI/Power In Linux 3.3
The fun for the Linux 3.3 kernel merge window is not over quite yet; Intel this morning published 50 patches for integration into this next Linux kernel that affect ACPI and power management, primarily around ACPI 5.0 support for the Linux kernel...
Browsing the motherboards specifications on Asus or Gigabyte website, all the motherboards are tagged as ACPI 1.0 compliant, or in best case 2.0.
What is new in ACPI 3, 4 or 5 ?
Wikipedia has some history of ACPI version changes: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Advance...erface#History
