"# The old "ibm_acpi" module has been renamed "thinkpad-acpi," and it features improved support for those laptops."
Is there more info about this somewhere?

I heavily suggest a visit to ThinkWiki and the archive for the linux-thinkpad mailinglist, the two major sources of information on ThinkPad Linux support.
Anyway, there is nothing breath-taking in thinkpad-acpi for 2.6.22, the mass of new features merge happened in 2.6.21.
2.6.22 thinkpad-acpi will feature a hwmon-compatible interface for the temperatures and fan control, though. There is also a rename of the backlight device to "thinkpad_screen" and some other assorted minor stuff.
