SubjectRE: [PATCH] ACPI: Execute the _PTS method when system reboot
To whom may concern,

A Lenovo feature depends on _PTS method execution when reboot. And after check the ACPI spec, I think _PTS should be exectued when reboo. This patch could fix the problem.

Any comments of this patch? Many thanks!

Subject: [PATCH] ACPI: Execute the _PTS method when system reboot

The _PTS control method is defined in the section 7.4.1 of acpi 6.0
spec. The _PTS control method is executed by the OS during the sleep
transition process for S1, S2, S3, S4, and for orderly S5 shutdown.
The sleeping state value (For example, 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 for the S5
soft-off state) is passed to the _PTS control method. This method
is called after OSPM has notified native device drivers of the sleep
state transition and before the OSPM has had a chance to fully
prepare the system for a sleep state transition.

The _PTS control method provides the BIOS a mechanism for performing
some housekeeping, such as writing the sleep type value to the embedded
controller, before entering the system sleeping state.

According to section 7.5 of acpi 6.0 spec, _PTS should run after _TTS.

Thus, a _PTS block notifier is added to the reboot notifier list so that
the _PTS object will also be evaluated when the system reboot.
