Re: [PATCH] asus-wmi: use ASUS_WMI_METHODID_DSTS2 as default DSTS ID.

Just FYI.  (I'm not filing a bug because I'm not sure if anyone's
experienced this with Debian kernels.)

Easy workaround is to blacklist/remove asus-wmi (and/or
eeepc-wmi/asus-nb-wmi). I think ubuntu guys are working on it, and
since they seems to be working with Asus (and I'm not), it will be
easier for them.
