Default Bug#464664: 2.6.24: X86_64 laptop hangs after logging powernow_k8 error while on battery

Hi Jason,

Thanks for reporting, and sorry for the long silence.

Do you still have access to this hardware? If so, would you still be
interested in pursuing this bug? ("No" is an ok answer, but please do
let us know so we can plan accordingly.)

Curious,
Jonathan

That's understandable.

The corresponding kernel bug was closed with a suggestion to reopen it if it
can be reproduced with a recent kernel. I think that's entirely reasonable.

I still have the hardware on a shelf somewhere here. At some point I'll take
it out, clear the drive and install a recent Debian (probably easier than
trying to upgrade a system that hasn't been booted for four years and there's
nothing worth preserving on the disk anyway).

That's a long way of saying, perhaps just close the bug and when I get to play
with the hardware I'll reopen the bug if I can still reproduce the issue with
an up to date kernel.
