[PATCH] i2c-nforce2: Remove redundant error messages on ACPI conflict
The ACPI subsystem strictly checks for resource conflicts. When there's a conflict, it outputs a warning message with all the details needed to properly diagnose the underlying issue. However, the i2c-nforce2 driver also prints its own message. Not only is the message redundant, it is at the KERN_ERR level, which o... 17 May 2010 16:54

[PATCH 1/2] x86/mrst: add cpu type detection
Medfield is the follow-up of Moorestown, it is treated under the same HW sub-architecture. However, we do need to know the CPU type in order for some of the driver to act accordingly. We also have different optimal clock configuration for each CPU type. Signed-off-by: Jacob Pan <jacob.jun.pan(a)linux.intel.com> --... 17 May 2010 15:47
