I don't much care for adding ACPI specific calls to vsprintf
as acpi is supposed to be OS generic anyway.

I don't think there's anything wrong with Toshi's approach.
Anyone that looks for speed in a logging message is looking
for an oddly fitting thing. Tracing sure, but logging?

I also don't see anything wrong with renaming it to just
acpi_<level>, but that's a different discussion.
