Hi everyone,

Just so that we are on the same page:

I've backported Nikolaus's patch for upstream here https://github.com/acpica/acpica/pull/506
and Bob has implemented the new API here: https://github.com/acpica/acpica/commit/c69369cd9cf0134e1aac516e97d612947daa8dc2

Once we do a release, I will send Bob's change to the linux ACPI mailing list.
Feel free to use this new API where you see fit.

Thanks,
Erik
