I've now checked the behaviour of Windows. It turns out that it never
makes the ACPI enable SMM call on resume. This is consistent with
http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=13745 which shows a bug
being introduced by us making the enable call in the first place.
Merging my patch and removing the blacklist would re-break these
machines. Instead, we should just unconditionally set SCI_EN since this
is the tested configuration. I'll send a followup patch.
