Please send me *by private mail* the DSDT (cat /proc/acpi/dsdt | gzip -9 
-f >x60.dsdt.gz) and dmidecode output for your X60.  Feel free to replace the
serial number and UUIDs with XXX or whatever.

And it also means that the X.org and kernel drivers could add code to do it,
if they haven't done that yet.  Good.  Someone that can test it could also
start working on kernel framebuffer support.

That's why ibm-acpi was born, it would not be even needed if the nice way
did all that it should :)
