Inspiron 5000e dmesg from test11-ac2

From: Jeff Lessem (Jeff.Lessem@Colorado.EDU)
Date: Wed Nov 22 2000 - 20:14:15 EST

Per the request in the 2.4.0-test11-ac2 announcement I am sending
along the dmesg output from bootup on a Dell Inspiron 5000e. I have
also included the output of cat /proc/apm. Reading /proc/apm no longer
causes an oops, but the battery information is disabled. Many thanks
for the fixes to APM, and if there is any more information I can
provide that would be useful in getting full APM support on the 5000e
please e-mail me directly, as I do not normally read linux-kernel.

Linux version 2.4.0-test11-ac2 (root@celis) (gcc version 2.95.2 20000220 (Debian GNU/Linux)) #1 Wed Nov 22 15:22:30 MST 2000
