Please, extend introduction in commit message to state above.

It seems I didn't finished the sentence here.

I though it might be actually ACPI event, GPE or direct IRQ (when GPIO
chip should not disable it, though if it's the case it likely a BIOS
bug for this hardware).

Actually Hans did a good point, so, feel free to use drivers/platform/x86.

We have one indeed cracked (screen is broken for good :-) ), so, I
would check what I can find there.

Fair enough.

I would do this until we have an evidence that it contains non-printable symbols
(or, in case you want to fix ahead, make the buffer 4 times bigger and use %*pE)

Ditto.

snprintf() despite n in the name takes care of terminating NUL.

63 and 511 looks too suspicious to be a version. Rather block size, a
mask or alike.

Cc: Wolfram for v3 and ask him directly. Last time I checked it looks
like I2C core doesn't care about ACPI when ->probe_new() is used.
