I would rename this to acpi_os_allocate_lock() or acpi_os_alloc_lock(),
so that it doesn't suggest the lock is initialized by this function.

Hmm. There's one more thing we need to take into account here. Namely,
include/acpi/acpiosxf.h is used by other OSes, so we shouldn't put
Linux-specific stuff into it.

I'm not sure how to work around that at the moment.

Thanks,
Rafael
