Hi, Xiaolong

Thank you very much for testing. I have got the reason why the ACPI
error happened and will give a fix patch below.

Also cc ACPI maintainers..

Here is the ACPI error.

The reason:
-----------

As we know, Linux divides the ACPI table management into two stages:
1) the early stage:
the mapped ACPI tables is temporary and should be unmapped before the
early stage ends.

2) the late stage.
the mapped ACPI tables is permanent.

And Linux uses *acpi_permanent_mmap* to distinguish the early stage and
the late stage. the default of *acpi_permanent_mmap* is false and will
be set to true in *acpi_early_init()*, which means that Linux regards
*acpi_early_init()* as the dividing line.

Linux maps the ACPI DMAR table in the late stage, But this patch make
the mapping earlier in the early stage, so the ACPI error happened.

The solution:
-------------

There are two solution we can use:

1) After use the DMAR table, we unmap it, which likes following

acpi_get_table();
parse the DMAR table and use it...
acpi_put_table();

2) Invoke the *acpi_early_init()* earlier.

The 1) has influence on the initialization of IOMMU, not work well.
The 2) is suitable, and it also can make the change of interrupt trigger
type earlier than Linux enter into the final interrupt delivery
mode.

The patch:
----------
it will be added in my next version.

I try to invoke acpi_early_init() earlier before
timekeeping_init() for accessing ACPI TAD device to set system clock.
Now the testing is OK, but There are a lot of operations between them,
I think we need more investigation.


Thanks,

dou.
