Update of bug #51747 (project grub):

                  Status:                    None => Invalid                
             Open/Closed:                    Open => Closed                 


Follow-up Comment #1:

This is an intentional decision by acpi-linux guys. A lot of firmware have
completely untested and broken code under osi(linux). It goes as far as code
under OSI(Linux) writing to random locations in memory corrupting whatever
happens to reside there. Acpi-linux has a whitelist of machines where
OSI(Linux) is enabled. However more interesting would be to fix generic code
instead. In any case it has to go on acpi-linux, not here
