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.
