Yes I saw it, thanks.
The problem with those is, that they are too risky to backport. I need to wait
until they hit mainline, get broad testing and get integrated into 10.3.

I also think (even someone mentioned an nx6325 on this bug IIRC) that the
nx6325 is not effected by the endless loop. I could not run into this problem
with such a machine here. It looks like a nx6125 (could reproduce this), nx6115
and nx6120 (possibly others) specific bug or it's just harder to hit the
endless loop on these. If I find the time the next days I try to identify the
loop in AML and try to propose a fix to HP. If it's not that intrusive, maybe
they pick it up for their next BIOS release. HP is at least (compared to other
laptop vendors) a bit interested in linux. I could imagine that is also the
reason why they stick to the ACPI specs and make that much use of it to stay
compatible, but now get punished for the ACPI linux code not being ready.
Fortunately (after this weird psmouse thing was found) things are moving on and
getting stable...
