As stated below, it actually may be better to remove the _L0D method
entirely, because our ACPICA GPE handling code should take care of
notifying all of the devices associated with GPE 0D in that case.

Yes, that would be good to know.

OK

I'll try to prepare a better patch for you to test.

That's to be expected. All of the devices mentioned in the _L0D method
above will be notified every time any of devices associated with GPE 0D
sends a PME message to the Root Complex, which happens quite often
while the polling used to check the PME bits is done only every second.

Thanks,
