when trying to debug the thermal-related oops on my athlon system (see
CALL FOR TESTING thread) I noticed the following
* Some functions in acpi/utilities/utdebug.c do not get compiled it even
if CONFIG_ACPI_DEBUG is set , because ACPI_DEBUG_OUTPUT does not get
set in acpi/utilities/Makefile.
* I assume that in acpi/acpi_ksyms.c the above mentioned function
symbols then should be exported if ACPI_DEBUG_OUTPUT is set not if
ACPI_DEBUG is set. Though I did not double-check.
* In case that ACPI_DEBUG_OUTPUT is to replace ACPI_DEBUG that should
happen for the proc interface stuff in acpi/system.c too.
Patch is attached.
 which causes /sbin/modprobe thermal to fail, because of missing
