it's not that hard ;)

replacing the DSDT code *while it's live* is just a bad idea. The kernel
already has a facility to override the DSDT, but that one does it *from
the start*. Sounds like that one should be used or maybe enhanced a
little to make it more distro friendly if something is lacking.
