But that would be a long-time focus and certainly not for Karmic. My patch here is perfectly non-intrusive and can only help for those of us who have problems with hdparm. The "nohdparm" option is honoured by other packages using hdparm, for a good reason.

It seems non-consistent that we offer the "nohdparm" option but fail to probe for it in one package.

It is not a this instead of that question. Deprecated or not, we still ship acpi-support.
