If we take a look at the declaration of this new OSL API, its name is acpi_os_prepare_sleep, but originally it only hacks two registers' values.
It is more like a Xen only hacking logic rather than an OSL API from ACPICA's perspective.
So the API declaration is just looking ugly to ACPICA, this has prevented this OSL API from being back ported to ACPICA for long time.
If ACPICA merged this codes, then it could be very hard for ACPICA to do any future enhancement to modify the logic in the acpi_hw_legacy_sleep/acpi_hw_extended_sleep.
Thus this is not clean for ACPICA, it will introduce unwanted software entropy to ACPICA.

This patchset enhances the OSL API, but doesn't make it cleaner, and just add a new parameter, it is a hack on top of the original hack.

IMO, from ACPICA's perspective, the OSL API should be designed to be re-used by any other OSPMs and might have more meaningful function declaration to ACPICA.
OSPM codes like Xen can implement this OSL API. The Xen only hacking logic should be put inside the OSL API implementation.

Hers is just a suggestion and I don't know if this can work for Xen:

status = acpi_os_prepare_sleep(u8 sleep_state);
if (ACPI_SKIP(status))
...

And export:
1. acpi_gbl_sleep_type_a/acpi_gbl_sleep_type_b
2. acpi_gbl_reduced_hardware
3. acpi_hw_get_bit_register_info
to be used by acpi_os_prepare_sleep.
At least you can just copy the logic in the acpi_hw_legacy_sleep/acpi_hw_extended_sleep to the acpi_os_prepare_sleep.
That kind of complexity is Xen's complexity, you shouldn't move this complexity to ACPICA just because you want Xen side codes to be simpler.
If Xen and tboot already have knowledge about above what will actually happen to the "sleep_state", we don't need to export them.

This way might be better for both parties.

Thanks and best regards
