    I don't see how that relates. The DSDT needs to be loaded even before
    driver initialization begins. Things like qlogic can over come this by
    being compiled as modules, and letting initramfs-tools take care of
    things.

    That's not the case for DSDT loading. I'm not saying this patch is the
    epitome of good coding, just that it's a needed feature.

    If there's a better way to do it, I'm volunteering to do the grunt work,
    but I haven't heard of any alternatives to this solution.
