Thanks for the report.

This issue is already being discussed. See the platform drivers thread
"[PATCH] platform/x86: fujitsu-laptop: Don't oops when FUJ02E3 is not
presnt".

> Any ideas?

Until the above post to platform drivers it was thought that all Fujitsu
laptops had FUJ02E3 since this was what was observed on all models we had
access to.

An interim patch is under consideration.
