SubjectRe: ACPI OSI disaster on latest HP laptops - critical temperature shutdown

The general goal of ACPICA is to be bug-to-bug compatible with Windows.
So it might be needed for ACPICA to just emulate the respective bugs.

That said for this case I don't think that's needed, Linux just has to
detect the workarounds (which it already does I think)
