Subject[patch 20/27] ACPICA: fix acpi-cpufreq boot crash due to _PSD return-by-reference
2.6.22-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us
know.

------------------
From: Bob Moore <robert.moore@intel.com>

patch 152c300d007c70c4a1847dad39ecdaba22e7d457 in mainline.

Changed resolution of named references in packages

Fixed a problem with the Package operator where all named
references were created as object references and left otherwise
unresolved. According to the ACPI specification, a Package can
only contain Data Objects or references to control methods. The
implication is that named references to Data Objects (Integer,
Buffer, String, Package, BufferField, Field) should be resolved
immediately upon package creation. This is the approach taken
with this change. References to all other named objects (Methods,
Devices, Scopes, etc.) are all now properly created as reference objects.
