It's not getting merged, SINCE IT DOESN'T WORK. It causes all sorts of
problems, because ACPI requires all kinds of things to be up and running
in order to actually work, and that in turn breaks all the devices that
have different ordering constraints.

ACPI is a piece of sh*t. It asks the OS to do impossible things, like
running it early in the config sequence when it then at the same time
wants to depend on stuff that are there *late* in the sequence. It's not
the first time this insane situation has happened, either.

But we'll try to merge the patch that totally switches around the whole
initialization order hopefully early after 2.6.20. But no way in hell do
we do it now, and I personally suspect we'll end reverting it when we do
try it just because it will probably break other things. But we'll see.

In the meantime, sky2 doesn't work with MSI.
