Subject[PATCH] ACPI: ibm-acpi: allow module to load when acpi notifiers can't be set
This patch allows for ibm-acpi to coexist (with diminished functionality) with
other drivers like ACPI_BAY. ibm-acpi will simply disable the functions it is
not able to register ACPI notifiers for.

Len, you can pull this patch from:
git://repo.or.cz/linux-2.6/linux-acpi-2.6/ibm-acpi-2.6.git
branch for-upstream/acpi-release

Please send it to Linus for merge in 2.6.21.

It will clash with the patches in acpi-test that are waiting for 2.6.22.
I will rediff those, and send you a pull request when this patch
gets accepted in mainline.
