Subject[PATCH 1/2] Revert "ACPI / button: Remove lid_init_state=method mode"
Date
This reverts commit ecb10b694b72ca5ea51b3c90a71ff2a11963425a.

Even if the method can be buggy some times, it's still a need
when you boot a laptop with a lid closed and an external monitor
connected (typical situation when using a docking station)

Note: this option has been removed without being deprecated, which
is terrible in term of distribution handling. The new default "open"
is plain wrong and we don't even have the chance to keep the current
default option because it's not there anymore.

If the userspace hasn't been prepared to ignore the unreliable "opened"
events and the unreliable initial state notification, Linux users can use
the following kernel parameters to handle the possible issues:
-A. button.lid_init_state=open:
+A. button.lid_init_state=method:
+ When this option is specified, the ACPI button driver reports the
+ initial lid state using the returning value of the _LID control method
+ and whether the "opened"/"closed" events are paired fully relies on the
+ firmware implementation.
+ This option can be used to fix some platforms where the returning value
+ of the _LID control method is reliable but the initial lid state
+ notification is missing.
+ This option is the default behavior during the period the userspace
+ isn't ready to handle the buggy AML tables.
+B. button.lid_init_state=open:
When this option is specified, the ACPI button driver always reports the
initial lid state as "opened" and whether the "opened"/"closed" events
are paired fully relies on the firmware implementation.
This may fix some platforms where the returning value of the _LID
control method is not reliable and the initial lid state notification is
missing.
- This option is the default behavior during the period the userspace
- isn't ready to handle the buggy AML tables.

If the userspace has been prepared to ignore the unreliable "opened" events
and the unreliable initial state notification, Linux users should always
use the following kernel parameter:
-B. button.lid_init_state=ignore:
+C. button.lid_init_state=ignore:
When this option is specified, the ACPI button driver never reports the
initial lid state and there is a compensation mechanism implemented to
ensure that the reliable "closed" notifications can always be delievered
