Okay, I just grepped the kernel and found some OF matching in the ACPI
bus code. This seems odd to be (at first sight at least). I'm not
entirely sure how this is supposed to work, but when you disable OF,
one could reasonably expect any matching utilising OF based tables to
be disabled too.

Not using of_match_ptr() on ACPI enabled platforms sounds batty to
me. If this is valid, perhaps the of_match_ptr()semantics should be
changed to include ACPI.
