    I'm not saying it would be illegal, merely that it would be harm
    readability. Based on how apic id's are formed from processor ids,
    though, I think we're really talking about an upper limit (128) that will
    never be reached.

    It's debugging output from acpi_ns_initialize_objects() and each period is
    from acpi_ns_init_one_device(). You can suppress it by disabing
    CONFIG_ACPI_DEBUG.
