Did anyone test that ASPM actually ended up enabled as a result? You're right that the check should be made conditional on the FADT version, though.

Ah, ok, I hadn't realised this was Chrome OS. My concern is more that BIOS vendors in general have this opinion, and Windows handles it differently to us in some way.
