That patch was sitting in my bk tree but yeah it's kinda stale. Len
Brown was going to completely redo all this stuff, so Hugh if you have a
need for your fix in the interim then great feel free to push, but there
is a more comprehensive fix also in the works.

Uncompressed: size vmlinux. gcc-3.2.2.

Are you talking to the compressed or uncompressed kernel? Maybe we got
it backwards, but the 70K number was the bzImage size difference.
(Actually I just tried it again. We're 80K now. I blame gcc. ;-))

(And of course, since the kernel (incl. ACPI) dynamically allocates
memory, even the uncompressed kernel image doesn't account for the
kernel's true memory footprint...)

The main side-effect _was_ seeing the interpreter being run.
I didn't know it was needed for figuring out IRQ routing.

Concerning code size, the 70K number in ACPI's Kconfig help is
out of date. A minimal ACPI (all user-selectable suboptions
disabled) adds 145K to my 2.6.0-test1 kernel.

Can do.  It will be called CONFIG_ACPI_HT, and will be required for ACPI to
enable HT -- with or without the full CONFIG_ACPI.

This won't help you. If you have *no* MPS tables, then you need ACPI
(and specifically the ability to execute the _PRT control methods) for
interrupt routing information, in addition to ioapic and local apic
(CPU) enumeration. If this wasn't the case, I'm sure someone would have
implemented ioapic MADT enumeration code long ago.

Also, nothing is going to fundamentally change the size of the ACPI code
(but we do keep chipping away at it, as evidenced by the dynamic SDT
patch, -Os, etc.) but I'd like to hear more about the behavioral
side-effects you'd mentioned, with an eye towards fixing them.

I would like to see HT_ONLY generalized to parsing the MADT for
I/O-APICs. The problem I have is that some mainboards, like my
i850 ASUS P4T-E, have I/O-APICs but no MP tables. The only way for
the Linux kernel to discover the I/O-APICs on these mainboard is
through MADT parsing.

However, this currently requires me to enable all of ACPI, which
I don't need or want for many reasons, including code bloat and
behavioural side-effects.

Replacing "HT_ONLY" with "MADT_PARSING_ONLY" would be ideal, IMO.

Ps. Below is the current plan for ACPI build and boot knobs.  Except for the

missed anything.

Hi all,

The ACPI patches against 2.4 and 2.5 have been updated, and are now
available on http://sf.net/projects/acpi . Thanks to the acceptance of
the ACPI patch in 2.4, they are now both very small.

Regards -- Andy

----------------------------------------
14 July 2003.  Summary of changes for version 20030619:

1) ACPI CA Core Subsystem:

Parse SSDTs in order discovered, as opposed to reverse order
(Hrvoje Habjanic)

Fixes from FreeBSD and NetBSD. (Frank van der Linden, Thomas
Klausner, Nate Lawson)


2) Linux:

Dynamically allocate SDT list (suggested by Andi Kleen)

proc function return value cleanups (Andi Kleen)

Correctly handle NMI watchdog during long stalls (Andrew Morton)

Make it so acpismp=force works (reported by Andrew Morton)
