SubjectBuggy DSDTs policy ?
What is the policy w.r.t broken DSDTs and the ACPI subsystem?
Specifically, which of these two options is right:

1- Provide a non-buggy DSDT to the kernel
2- Make the ACPI subsystem tolerant of the bugs

The option 3, have all biosen over the world fixed is a nice fantasy,
but nothing else.

If 1, we need to put a mechanism for that in the official kernel.

If 2, I'll start working on patches to make the laptop I play with
work as-is.

So, which it is?
