I think this patch is OK. One nit is that kernel printks should never
be constant strings. There's almost always more information that's
useful in debugging. This error should at least tell us which driver
is involved, and preferably which specific device (though we have to
be careful in case the device struct is freed by acpi_bus_trim()).
