Outlines how to patch a kernel for ACPI support.
nger use .date to distinguish kernel builds. It was too frustrating to have 030627a, 032627b (etc) as I tried to figure things out. I now use names, in alphabetical order, starting with the kernel build "alien". I'm going to leave the date option in though as I still think it's a good way to do things. My current kernel, 2.6.6, is "Elrond." The machine itself is "Smeagol."
