Yowch!  i've never seen anything like that.
Let's see if we can figure out what's different between your system and
I've got an X20 ,Type 2662-36U.  (On a bar code sticker on the bottom of
my unit.)
We're both running 2.2.18 kernel.  You used my .config to build, so the
kernels and modules should be identical, right?
I think we're both running RedHat 7.0... right?
Hmmm... don't know if it matters, but I was pretty aggressive installing
all the recommended upgrades/security fixes from RedHat.  If you have
not, you might want to try it.
Maybe we should compare our BIOS Power Management settings?  Wish there
was a way to dump these. :-/

Failing that... hmmm.  Anyone else have any ideas?

By the way, does anyone have tpctl running on an x20/RH7 combo?
I have not been successful getting it to compile.
