Subject[PATCH v4 1/4] ACPICA: Tables: Fix regression introduced by a too early mechanism enabling
In the Linux kernel side, acpi_get_table() clones haven't been fully
balanced by acpi_put_table() invocations. In ACPICA side, due to the design
change, there are also unbalanced acpi_get_table_by_index() invocations
requiring special care.

So it is not a good timing to report acpi_get_table() counting errors. The
strict balanced validation count check should only be enabled after
confirming that all invocations are safe and compliant to their designed

Thus this patch removes the fatal error along with the error report to
fix this issue. Reported by Dan Williams, fixed by Lv Zheng.

Fixes: 174cc7187e6f ("ACPICA: Tables: Back port acpi_get_table_with_size() and early_acpi_os_unmap_memory() from Linux kernel")
