Since a kernel upgrade two days ago when was available through pacman I observe one regression:

- reboot or poweroff command does not complete and stops in a "Rebooting" or "Powering off" line on console, not going further (ACPI related ?).

Nothing weird or unusual in logs (kernel, message, Xorg). Reverting to worked and restored proper behaviour.
This task depends upon

And clearly an ACPI related issue:

- poweroff : does what expected but stops right after showing "POWER OFF" string ;
- reboot : i.e. with string "REBOOTING" ;

acpitool -s puts the laptop is S3 sleep state.
Thermal info has moved:

# acpitool -tv
Could not open /proc/acpi/thermal_zone
Thermal info: <not available>

some information is available from /proc/acpi/ibm/thermal showing shifted temperature values (laptop in same running conditions):

temperatures: 32 25 25 26 27 -128 25 -128 26 27 -128 -128 -128 -128 -128 -128

temperatures: 48 51 51 44 27 -128 33 -128 47 45 -128 -128 -128 -128 -128 -128
