    Not sure that's all that useful. I can just see BMC's making the ACPI
    mistake of trying to work around specific issues, by checking for
    Linux.

    But since there are so many different Linux that will never work
    because "Linux" does not describe a fixed release or code base.

    Probably dangerous.
