    > CONFIG_ACPI_CUSTOM_DSDT_FILE=""

    Is there a way to generate (in Kconfig language) the boolean
    CONFIG_ACPI_CUSTOM_DSDT based on whether CONFIG_ACPI_CUSTOM_DSDT_FILE
    == "" or != "" ? I tried to muck around with that last night but
    couldn't get it to work. I.e., just present the ACPI_CUSTOM_DSDT_FILE
    config symbol to the user and then generate the ACPI_CUSTOM_DSDT bool
    based on the string value.
