Generally the compq smartarrays are supported.

But due to quite poor ACPI in the newer machines, 5.x is no fun there.
(Typing this on a compaq evo N610c  notebook with 4.8-stable, also no
fun with acpi etc)

Which exact Compaq box  / generation do you have?

On 360/380 G3 there are some reports that ACPI etc. is broken with 5.x
