Thank you very much, this will solve the issue. acpi_avaluate_object on
_PDC is now only called
For the records: we spoke about an Asrock P5B-DE BIOS 1.10 board
equipped with an Intel E2200
and 4GB of RAM. The problem will not occur, if Speedstep is disabled, or
only 2 GB RAM is used.
As I am not such an expert (although through this experience, I now know
much more about ACPI),
can we now assume that the BIOS is ok? It's because I mailed the Asrock
guys already and either
need to give them the latest info, or I would explain them everything is
BR & Thanks again,

Betreff: RE: AW: Re: [Xen-devel] ACPI problem, was Xen BUG in mm / Xen
4.0.1 with 184.108.40.206/21 pvops Kernel?
Jimmy and I checked the log and the SSDT table, since it is caused by a
workaround in Xen PVops dom0. Currently PVOPS dom0 will try to get all
CPU's information in the system, no matter it is populated or not, while
native Linux will get the CPU information only if it is enabled. During
this process, following SSDT code cause trouble:
The followed SSDT code try to load region
OperationRegion (GV03, SystemMemory, DerefOf (Index
(SSDT, 0x0A)), DerefOf (Index (SSDT, 0x0B
Load (GV03, HI3)
While the region is defined as:
Name (SSDT, Package (0x18)
That seems try to load to 0x80000000.
Can you please try to apply the attached patch to see if it has any
help? This patch should enable dom0 to only scan enabled CPUs.
