AW: RE: RE: RE: RE: [Xen-devel] No C-States any longer...

There are some information in FACP (attached), there is no FADT.

In order to test native Linux, I need some more days. Family & Barbecue 
have higher Prio ;o).

this is expected sequence

though CST is optional, it's weird that even FADT doesn't contain valid 
information. Could you compare with your working pvops dom0 version or
compare with generic linux to see any difference? This parse logic 
be generic for both Linux and Xen.

Anyway, you seems close to the root cause...
