From what I can see so far, the reason for the gpe storm detector going off
is due to too many interrupts with the battery. As an example there was
a bug filed for the same issue with the macbook's:
using acpi_osi=Darwin does prevent the gpe storm detector from
going off, but you loose any info on the battery. If anybody has any ideas on
modifying any of the battery modules, or adjusting the DSDT it sure
would be appreciated.
