this is pretty useless in this case,
if you want to do something usefull grab 2.6.20-rc3 from upstream
and file bugzilla.kernel.org bugs for the open ones.
afaik acpi is still not settled, may be othere ones too.
linux-2.6 meta packet has way to many bogus or valid reports
that a user would look at it, so i highly question this documentation.
modprobe blacklisting is not like black magic and not worth to "document".
