The reason I asked is because the start of the apm driver init routine
looks like this:

        if (apm_info.bios.version == 0) {
                printk(KERN_INFO "apm: BIOS not found.\n");
                return -ENODEV;
                "apm: BIOS version %d.%d Flags 0x%02x (Driver version %s)\n",
                ((apm_info.bios.version >> 8) & 0xff),
                (apm_info.bios.version & 0xff),

So if the driver is present, you must get one of these two messages ...
