Reassigning Bug#271814: who has to load acpi modules?
Hi d-developers, I need some help to find out who I have to reassign
this bug to (http://bugs.debian.org/271814), or else how to handle it.
Here's an excerpt from the discussion I had with the bug submitter:

Discover or hotplug doesn't load ACPI modules and I'm trying to keep my
/etc/modules minimal. Standard user would rather have ACPI modules
loaded automagically. So who should load them then? I don't think it up
to user, in that case, it would be huge usability regression.
I'd like to repeat that if you feel it's not cpufreqd's problem, please,
reassign it elsewhere (acpid, discover2, hotplug).
It's certainly not a cpufreqd's duty, any suggestion?
