SubjectRe: [PATCH 0/5] ACPI: Add _OST support for ACPI hotplug

Toshi,

This patch hasn't gone through sufficient new functionality testing as
the only testing that was done was exercising it with stubbed out
firmware calls. I am not clear on how much regression testing this patch
has undergone. Sorry, it doesn't give me the warm and fuzzies.
