RE: [Linux-ia64] kacpidpc process takes 100% of CPU

The ACPI interpreter starts threads to run control methods, and these are
labeled kacpidpc. When nothing is wrong, these are short-lived, and then
terminate.

Can you please use kdb, break in, and get a stack trace to find out where
we're stuck?

Thanks -- Regards -- Andy
