Dear Rafael,
Sorry to trouble you, but a number of us are having lots of grief
getting a response from ibm/lenovo regarding acpi bugs in newer models
like the Helix 2. The bugs make these machines difficult to use, and
there are various reports of this on the internet, along with people
willing to debug patches. But it’s impossible to contact anyone on the
ibm-acpi team to help with this. Do you know who we can contact to
help sort these bugs out? Myself and others are polite, fairly tech
savy, and willing to help, so I’m a bit puzzled by the silence from
this team.

The example is the Helix 2, see:
https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=100171

and various repetitions of this…

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1520965?comments=all
