Maybe I'm looking at the wrong place: Where would I find it? There is definitely
no separate entry under /sys/firmware/acpi/tables - but that's also true for my
workstation.

In any case: The hardware defines that the GPIO events are sent via SCIs. That
fact is probably not expressed in ACPI language.
