    SubjectRe: [RFC/PATCH 2.6.32] Simple Firmware Interface (SFI): initial support
    There seems to be a huge amount of overlap between SFI and ACPI. 
    Couldn't this have simply taken the form of some additional ACPI tables
    and a decoupling of ACPI enumeration from runtime AML interpretation?
    How final is this spec?

    I realise that we're pretty much constrained to implementing this if
    hardware actually ships with it, but it seems to be an additional
    firmware interface with no real benefit - as far as I can tell it's not
    possible for a platform to meaningfully implement both ACPI and SFI
    without duplicating information?
