Overall, I think that something similar to this patch will be needed, but
please don't change the acpi_load_table() signature. Instead, define it as
a wrapper around a new function called, say, acpi_load_table_with_index()
that will take two arguments, like acpi_load_table() in your patch.

Then, you'd only need to call acpi_load_table_with_index() directly from
acpi_table_aml_write().

In that case, IMO, it will be easier to handle the divergence between the
upstream ACPICA and the kernel in the future in case the upstream doesn't
decide to incorporate your change.
