sonypi aka /dec/sonypi does not work with ACPI enable kernels.  The two
conflict.  I have the sony z505js and I just ignore the wheel (sonypi) in
linux.  Plus ACPI is not as developed as APM.  I use APM instead of ACPI
since ACPI screwes up my hibernation key ([Fn]-[F12]).  Once ACPI gets a
litle better I will switch to it.
