SubjectRe: ACPI request/release generic address
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1
It an acpi_generic_address structure defined in include/acpi/actbl2.h.
It's an address that can be in memory, I/O, or PCI configuration space.

The definition is at http://www.microsoft.com/hwdev/tech/onnow/LF-ACPI.asp

|Can you define a generic address?

|IIRC, ACPI needs some work in this area.

|If the "generic address" is host RAM, that's easy.
|If the generic address is PIO address, that's mostly easy.
|If the generic address is MMIO address, that takes a bit of care with
