I have been hunting the thermal shutdown problem during a couple of long
days (and nights...). It was a very difficult bug to track down, as it
appears and disappears on my system without any logic.
This is what I have found so far:
Here's the commit that broke it:
Undoing the patch heals the issue, but is probably not the right way to do it.
This patch corrects the issue:
It works well on vanilla 184.108.40.206, the base for our lenny kernel. This is my
favorit solution to backport to our Lenny kernel.
The issue has disappeared in the 2.6.27 pre-patches. I will report later
on this one, as I am not through yet. There's more involved there, I think.
BTW: The file in question (drivers/acpi/ec.c) plays a very important role
regarding our second 2.6.26 bug, the EC GPE storm.
