can you be a bit specific for a) what GPE is, b) what the problem is,
c) what to look for (any test procedures?) and d) which HP laptop
models might be affected?

I do have an Omnibook vt6200 (P-IV 1.8G) running 6-STABLE and a new HP
6715b (Tur-X2 TL-60) running 7-RC1 (currently installing on this, OS
is not yet fully set up).

If I knew what to look for, I might test your patches (at least on the
 7-RC1 version).
