No, the thinkpad modules provided a lot of useful functions for things
which are done by acpi now - but back at times when acpi was not useable
or didn't exist, they worked very well - and still do so for Thinkpads
which can't handle acpi. Thinkpads had a well working APM implementation
for a long time, at least up to the R/T40 series.
