That's the EC driver which is not used on arm64 AFAICS and that driver
itself can be made depend on HAS_IOPORT.

If that is the case, there should be no need to add the extra
dependency to CONFIG_ACPI.

I would prefer that.

IMO, if ARCH_SUPPORTS_ACPI is set, all of the requisite dependencies
should be met.
