Subject[PATCH 02/15] ACPI: Ignore invalid _PSS entries, but use valid ones
Date
From: Marco Aurelio da Costa <costa@gamic.com>

The EliteBook 8560W has non-initialized entries in its _PSS ACPI
table. Instead of bailing out when the first non-initialized entry is
found, ignore it and use only the valid entries. Only bail out if there
is no valid entry at all.

[v3: Fixes suggested by Konrad]
