I gathered that, do not tell me it is nice please. ACPI core code
is chock full of things like this that force you to define functions
in arch arm64 since they are called from "generic" code, and I do not
like that, at all.

It can be cleaned up later.

If there is no particular reason the check should not be there, "x86
needs it" is not a good reason, there is arch specific code for that
in x86 directories.

Ok, let's wait for Leif to confirm that.

Thanks,
