Subject[PATCH 3.13 162/162] ACPI / EC: Fix regression due to conflicting firmware behavior between Samsung and Acer.
Date
3.13.11.11 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Lv Zheng <lv.zheng@intel.com>

commit 79149001105f18bd2285ada109f9229ea24a7571 upstream.

It is reported that Samsung laptops that need to poll events are broken by
the following commit:
Commit 3afcf2ece453e1a8c2c6de19cdf06da3772a1b08
Subject: ACPI / EC: Add support to disallow QR_EC to be issued when SCI_EVT isn't set

The behaviors of the 2 vendor firmwares are conflict:
1. Acer: OSPM shouldn't issue QR_EC unless SCI_EVT is set, firmware
automatically sets SCI_EVT as long as there is event queued up.
2. Samsung: OSPM should issue QR_EC whatever SCI_EVT is set, firmware
returns 0 when there is no event queued up.

This patch is a quick fix to distinguish the behaviors to make Acer
behavior only effective for Acer EC firmware so that the breakages on
Samsung EC firmware can be avoided.

Fixes: 3afcf2ece453 (ACPI / EC: Add support to disallow QR_EC to be issued ...)
