ACPI: make _OSI(Linux) console messages smarter
If BIOS invokes _OSI(Linux), the kernel response depends on what the ACPI DMI list knows about the system, and that is reflectd in dmesg: 1) System unknown to DMI: ACPI: BIOS _OSI(Linux) query ignored ACPI: DMI System Vendor: LENOVO ACPI: DMI Product Name: 7661W1P ACPI: DMI Product Version: ThinkPad T61 ACPI: DMI Board Name: 7661W1P ACPI: DMI BIOS Vendor: LENOVO ACPI: DMI BIOS Date: 10/18/2007 ACPI: Please send DMI info above to linux-acpi@vger.kernel.org ACPI: If "acpi_osi=Linux" works better, please notify linux-acpi@vger.kernel.org 2) System known to DMI, but effect of OSI(Linux) unknown: ACPI: DMI detected: Lenovo ThinkPad T61 ... ACPI: BIOS _OSI(Linux) query ignored via DMI ACPI: If "acpi_osi=Linux" works better, please notify linux-acpi@vger.kernel.org 3) System known to DMI, which disables _OSI(Linux): ACPI: DMI detected: Lenovo ThinkPad T61 ... ACPI: BIOS _OSI(Linux) query ignored via DMI 4) System known to DMI, which enable _OSI(Linux): ACPI: DMI detected: Lenovo ThinkPad T61 ACPI: Added _OSI(Linux) ... ACPI: BIOS _OSI(Linux) query honored via DMI cmdline overrides take precidence over the built-in default and the DMI prescribed default. cmdline "acpi_osi=Linux" results in: ACPI: BIOS _OSI(Linux) query honored via cmdline Signed-off-by: Len Brown <len.brown@intel.com>

+ * osi_linux -- Control response to BIOS _OSI(Linux) query.
+ *
+ * As Linux evolves, the features that it supports change.
+ * So an OSI string such as "Linux" is not specific enough
+ * to be useful across multiple versions of Linux. It
+ * doesn't identify any particular feature, interface,
+ * or even any particular version of Linux...
+ *
+ * Unfortunately, Linux-2.6.22 and earlier responded "yes"
+ * to a BIOS _OSI(Linux) query. When
+ * a reference mobile BIOS started using it, its use
+ * started to spread to many vendor platforms.
+ * As it is not supportable, we need to halt that spread.
+ *
+ * Today, most BIOS references to _OSI(Linux) are noise --
+ * they have no functional effect and are just dead code
+ * carried over from the reference BIOS.
+ *
+ * The next most common case is that _OSI(Linux) harms Linux,
+ * usually by causing the BIOS to follow paths that are
+ * not tested during Windows validation.
+ *
+ * Finally, there is a short list of platforms
+ * where OSI(Linux) benefits Linux.
+ *
+ * In Linux-2.6.23, OSI(Linux) is first disabled by default.
+ * DMI is used to disable the dmesg warning about OSI(Linux)
+ * on platforms where it is known to have no effect.
+ * But a dmesg warning remains for systems where
+ * we do not know if OSI(Linux) is good or bad for the system.
+ * DMI is also used to enable OSI(Linux) for the machines
+ * that are known to need it.
+ *
+ * BIOS writers should NOT query _OSI(Linux) on future systems.
+ * It will be ignored by default, and to get Linux to
+ * not ignore it will require a kernel source update to
+ * add a DMI entry, or a boot-time "acpi_osi=Linux" invocation.
