[Linux apm] Armada laptops: apm: set display: Interface not engaged


Hello,

I just bought an Armada E500 and activated apm, but when the screen
should go blank (after a while), "apm: set display: Interface not engaged"
is displayed instead, while BIOS reports that apm is engaged :
apm: BIOS version 1.2 Flags 0x03 (Driver version 1.16)
which is the same as /proc/apm reports. The same occurs under X, and apm
events aren't handled properly.

Searching with Google showed that M300 on kernel 2.4.17, and M700 on 2.4.6
had similar troubles.

Therefore, I tried to engage apm at boot time, even if bios reports it
has already done it, and then the "Interface not engaged" never appeared
any more, the screen got blank when it should and apm events ran well...

Someone reported it also worked on the M300 and M700 of his office.
