I am currently using IBM ThinkPad T42 2373-5TU w/ RELENG_5.3 which
has all the above listed things other than bluetoosh support. I
have not tried the wireless connectivity via the Intel Pro/2200BG
Let me mention that ACPI does work wrt CPU throttling,
suspend/resume, and power off. Use of apm to suspend the computer
results in machine lock, thus hard power recycle/off.
