And the laptop strikes again!

There’s apparently a conflict between the changes I made to the DSDT and some new ACPI code in the 2.6.30 kernel. The fan is having spasms and the kernel keeps spewing ACPI warnings on the console.
Unfortunately I don’t have time to debug it right now, so I’m currently stuck with 2.6.29.3 which is still OK.
I also wanted to update the BIOS to 1.8 before messing with the DSDT any further, to see if it finally fixes the problem for good, but since flashrom doesn’t seem to work on this chipset, I’d have to reinstall Windows to use the BIOS upgrade utility and that’s obviously gonna take some time…
