The problem with ACPI bus is that it is not as simple as other buses,
i.e. it may have purely ACPI devices along with *companion* devices,
which are usually represented by platform bus. On top of that for
several ACPI devices there can be one physical node and it will be not
so clear what you are exactly looking for by traversing acpi_bus_type.
I believe it's hidden on purpose.
