After writing the above I started to think about the extra changes needed
to improve that and I realized that it would take making the OS layer
support deferred memory unmapping, such that the unused mappings would be
queued up for later removal and then released in one go at a suitable time.

However, that would be sufficient to address the issue addressed by this
series, because the deferred unmapping could be used in
acpi_ev_system_memory_region_setup() right away and that would be a much
simpler change than the one made in patch [1/3].

So I went ahead and implemented this and the result is there in the
acpica-osl branch in my tree, but it hasn't been built yet, so caveat
emptor. Anyway, please feel free to have a look at it still.

Cheers!
