In another BSDTalk interview we missed from last year, Will Backman interviews Mike Larkin (mlarkin@) about his work with ACPI in OpenBSD. In contrast to other operating systems (predominantly using Intel's code), OpenBSD has a simple, independent implementation of ACPI. Mike talks about the challenges they've experienced working with AML parsers, poor hardware implementations, lackluster compliance to the ACPI "standard", and how users can help by providing good test feedback.
