Uh, yes. I wasn't sure where I could add a hook to be called early
enough so that the assignment to hpet_address still takes effect, so I
just unconditionally replaced acpi_parse_hpet.

This would be a good idea for a patch that would have any chance of
being applied to the kernel.

You didn't yet see it ... ;-)
