I don't know.

In fact, I have found that apparently there is a worse ACPI regression
between 2.4.20-pre5 and 2.4.20-rc1; I have one machine here which does
not work without ACPI (because of broken PCI tables -- that's what you
get for duplicating data), and -pre5 works on it and -rc1 doesn't.

I will try 2.5.<latest> when I get home this evening.
