Subject[patch 33/33] ACPICA: Allow multiple backslash prefix in namepaths
2.6.28-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Lin Ming <ming.m.lin@intel.com>

commit d037c5fd7367548191eab2b376a1d08c4ffaf7ff upstream.

In a fully qualified namepath, allow multiple backslash prefixes.
This can happen because of the use of a double-backslash in strings
(since backslash is the escape character) causing confusion.
ACPICA BZ 739 Lin Ming.
