few notes at:
The short of it is that the Linux will boot on the 5000e with APM
enabled w/out crashing and I can `cat /proc/apm' with out any ill
effects. (Thus, I removed Alan's email address from the CC line).
However, I wouldn't recommend others moving to this kernel version
unless they intend to work on the APM code. Currently the only two
APM features I use don't work (power off on shutdown and battery
reporting) and the Fn-Esc which normally suspends the machine happily,
results in a hang upon wakeup.
If others have had better luck, speak up!
