:On Intel's site you can download acpica-unix-20040211.tar.gz
:how come we didn't go with the freshest as I'm sure the new version
:contains a lot of bug fixes.

   I don't think there's a rush, I'd like to get it working first.
   The changes look fairly minor, and the 16 Jan 2004 changes were mainly
   just copyright statement adjustments (2003->2004).

11 February 2004.  Summary of changes for version 20040211:

1) ACPI CA Core Subsystem:

Completed investigation and implementation of the call-by-
reference mechanism for control method arguments.

Fixed a problem where a store of an object into an indexed
package could fail if the store occurs within a different method
than the method that created the package.

Fixed a problem where the ToDecimal operator could return
incorrect results.

Fixed a problem where the CopyObject operator could fail on some
of the more obscure objects (e.g., Reference objects.)

Improved the output of the Debug object to display buffer,
package, and index objects.

Fixed a problem where constructs of the form "RefOf (ArgX)" did
not return the expected result.

Added permanent ACPI_REPORT_ERROR macros for all instances of the

Integrated latest version of acfreebsd.h
