SubjectRe: [PATCH] ACPI/APEI: Add BERT data driver

"data" works. ACPI table names are all upper-case, so it
can't conflict. Any programs that scan the whole directory
have to already skip "dynamic", so they likely would not
be confused by the appearance of a second directory.

For BERT there is only one blob of data. So naming it the
same as the table is fine. Maybe other tables might have
more than one thing? If so, they could use the table name
as a prefix, or make a subdirectory. We can cross that
bridge if anyone finds additional useful things to add.

Ok. Will re-spin the patch with these names.
