      Implemented the use of a cache object for all internal
      namespace nodes. Since there are about 1000 static nodes
      in a typical system, this will decrease memory use for
      cache implementations that minimize per-allocation overhead
      (such as a slab allocator.)
      
      Removed the reference count mechanism for internal
      namespace nodes, since it was deemed unnecessary. This
      reduces the size of each namespace node by about 5%-10%
      on all platforms. Nodes are now 20 bytes for the 32-bit
      case, and 32 bytes for the 64-bit case.
      
      Optimized several internal data structures to reduce
      object size on 64-bit platforms by packing data within
      the 64-bit alignment. This includes the frequently used
      ACPI_OPERAND_OBJECT, of which there can be ~1000 static
      instances corresponding to the namespace objects.
      
      Added two new strings for the predefined _OSI method:
      "Windows 2001.1 SP1" and "Windows 2006".
      
      Split the allocation tracking mechanism out to a separate
      file, from utalloc.c to uttrack.c. This mechanism appears
      to be only useful for application-level code. Kernels may
      wish to not include uttrack.c in distributions.
      
      Removed all remnants of the obsolete ACPI_REPORT_* macros
      and the associated code. (These macros have been replaced
      by the ACPI_ERROR and ACPI_WARNING macros.)

      Tagged all external interfaces to the subsystem with the
      new ACPI_EXPORT_SYMBOL macro. This macro can be defined
      as necessary to assist kernel integration. For Linux,
      the macro resolves to the EXPORT_SYMBOL macro. The default
      definition is NULL.
      
      Added the ACPI_THREAD_ID type for the return value from
      acpi_os_get_thread_id(). This allows the host to define this
      as necessary to simplify kernel integration. The default
      definition is ACPI_NATIVE_UINT.
      
      Valery Podrezov fixed two interpreter problems related
      to error processing, the deletion of objects, and placing
      invalid pointers onto the internal operator result stack.

      Increased the reference count threshold where a warning is
      emitted for large reference counts in order to eliminate
      unnecessary warnings on systems with large namespaces
      (especially 64-bit.) Increased the value from 0x400
      to 0x800.
      
      Due to universal disagreement as to the meaning of the
      'c' in the calloc() function, the ACPI_MEM_CALLOCATE
      macro has been renamed to ACPI_ALLOCATE_ZEROED so that the
      purpose of the interface is 'clear'. ACPI_MEM_ALLOCATE and
      ACPI_MEM_FREE are renamed to ACPI_ALLOCATE and ACPI_FREE.

      Implemented a change to the IndexField support to match
      the behavior of the Microsoft AML interpreter. The value
      written to the Index register is now a byte offset,
      no longer an index based upon the width of the Data
      register. This should fix IndexField problems seen on
      some machines where the Data register is not exactly one
      byte wide. The ACPI specification will be clarified on
      this point.
      
      Fixed a problem where several resource descriptor
      types could overrun the internal descriptor buffer due
      to size miscalculation: VendorShort, VendorLong, and
      Interrupt. This was noticed on IA64 machines, but could
      affect all platforms.
      
      Fixed a problem where individual resource descriptors were
      misaligned within the internal buffer, causing alignment
      faults on IA64 platforms.

      Implemented support in the Resource Manager to allow
      unresolved namestring references within resource package
      objects for the _PRT method. This support is in addition
      to the previously implemented unresolved reference
      support within the AML parser. If the interpreter slack
      mode is enabled (true on Linux unless acpi=strict),
      these unresolved references will be passed through
      to the caller as a NULL package entry.
      http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=5741
      
      Implemented and deployed new macros and functions for
      error and warning messages across the subsystem. These
      macros are simpler and generate less code than their
      predecessors. The new macros ACPI_ERROR, ACPI_EXCEPTION,
      ACPI_WARNING, and ACPI_INFO replace the ACPI_REPORT_*
      macros.
      
      Implemented the acpi_cpu_flags type to simplify host OS
      integration of the Acquire/Release Lock OSL interfaces.
      Suggested by Steven Rostedt and Andrew Morton.
      
      Fixed a problem where Alias ASL operators are sometimes
      not correctly resolved. causing AE_AML_INTERNAL

      Fixed several problems with the implementation of the
      ConcatenateResTemplate ASL operator. As per the ACPI
      specification, zero length buffers are now treated as a
      single EndTag. One-length buffers always cause a fatal
      exception. Non-zero length buffers that do not end with
      a full 2-byte EndTag cause a fatal exception.
      
      Fixed a possible structure overwrite in the
      AcpiGetObjectInfo external interface. (With assistance

      Added 2006 copyright.
      
      At SuSE's suggestion, enabled all error messages
      without enabling function tracing, ie with CONFIG_ACPI_DEBUG=n
      
      Replaced all instances of the ACPI_DEBUG_PRINT macro invoked at
      the ACPI_DB_ERROR and ACPI_DB_WARN debug levels with
      the ACPI_REPORT_ERROR and ACPI_REPORT_WARNING macros,
      respectively. This preserves all error and warning messages
      in the non-debug version of the ACPICA code (this has been
      referred to as the "debug lite" option.) Over 200 cases
      were converted to create a total of over 380 error/warning
      messages across the ACPICA code. This increases the code
      and data size of the default non-debug version by about 13K.
      Added ACPI_NO_ERROR_MESSAGES flag to enable deleting all messages.
      The size of the debug version remains about the same.

      Implemented optional support to allow unresolved names
      within ASL Package objects. A null object is inserted in
      the package when a named reference cannot be located in
      the current namespace. Enabled via the interpreter slack
      flag which Linux has enabled by default (acpi=strict
      to disable slack).  This should eliminate AE_NOT_FOUND
      exceptions seen on machines that contain such code.
      
      Implemented an optimization to the initialization
      sequence that can improve boot time. During ACPI device
      initialization, the _STA method is now run if and only
      if the _INI method exists. The _STA method is used to
      determine if the device is present; An _INI can only be
      run if _STA returns present, but it is a waste of time to
      run the _STA method if the _INI does not exist. (Prototype
      and assistance from Dong Wei)
      
      Implemented use of the C99 uintptr_t for the pointer
      casting macros if it is available in the current
      compiler. Otherwise, the default (void *) cast is used
      as before.
      
      Fixed some possible memory leaks found within the
      execution path of the Break, Continue, If, and CreateField
      operators. (Valery Podrezov)
      
      Fixed a problem introduced in the 20051202 release where
      an exception is generated during method execution if a
      control method attempts to declare another method.

      Modified the parsing of control methods to no longer
      create namespace objects during the first pass of the
      parse. Objects are now created only during the execute
      phase, at the moment the namespace creation operator
      is encountered in the AML (Name, OperationRegion,
      CreateByteField, etc.) This should eliminate ALREADY_EXISTS
      exceptions seen on some machines where reentrant control
      methods are protected by an AML mutex. The mutex will now
      correctly block multiple threads from attempting to create
      the same object more than once.
      
      Increased the number of available Owner Ids for namespace
      object tracking from 32 to 255. This should eliminate the
      OWNER_ID_LIMIT exceptions seen on some machines with a
      large number of ACPI tables (either static or dynamic).
      
      Enhanced the namespace dump routine to output the owner
      ID for each namespace object.

      Fixed a problem in the AML parser where the method thread
      count could be decremented below zero if any errors
      occurred during the method parse phase. This should
      eliminate AE_AML_METHOD_LIMIT exceptions seen on some
      machines. This also fixed a related regression with the
      mechanism that detects and corrects methods that cannot
      properly handle reentrancy (related to the deployment of
      the new OwnerId mechanism.)
      
      Eliminated the pre-parsing of control methods (to detect
      errors) during table load. Related to the problem above,
      this was causing unwind issues if any errors occurred
      during the parse, and it seemed to be overkill. A table
      load should not be aborted if there are problems with
      any single control method, thus rendering this feature
      rather pointless.
      
      Fixed a problem with the new table-driven resource manager
      where an internal buffer overflow could occur for small
      resource templates.
      
      Implemented a new external interface, acpi_get_vendor_resource()
      This interface will find and return a vendor-defined
      resource descriptor within a _CRS or _PRS
      method via an ACPI 3.0 UUID match. (from Bjorn Helgaas)
      
      Removed the length limit (200) on string objects as
      per the upcoming ACPI 3.0A specification. This affects
      the following areas of the interpreter: 1) any implicit
      conversion of a Buffer to a String, 2) a String object
      result of the ASL Concatentate operator, 3) the String
      object result of the ASL ToString operator.

      Modified the subsystem initialization sequence to improve
      GPE support. The GPE initialization has been split into
      two parts in order to defer execution of the _PRW methods
      (Power Resources for Wake) until after the hardware is
      fully initialized and the SCI handler is installed. This
      allows the _PRW methods to access fields protected by the
      Global Lock. This will fix systems where a NO_GLOBAL_LOCK
      exception has been seen during initialization.
      
      Fixed a regression with the ConcatenateResTemplate()
      ASL operator introduced in the 20051021 release.
      
      Implemented support for "local" internal ACPI object
      types within the debugger "Object" command and the
      acpi_walk_namespace() external interfaces. These local
      types include RegionFields, BankFields, IndexFields, Alias,
      and reference objects.

      "utresrc.c". This code is shared by both the Resource
      Manager and the AML Debugger.

      Implemented support for the EM64T and other x86_64
      processors. This essentially entails recognizing
      that these processors support non-aligned memory
      transfers. Previously, all 64-bit processors were assumed
      to lack hardware support for non-aligned transfers.
      
      Completed conversion of the Resource Manager to nearly
      full table-driven operation. Specifically, the resource
      conversion code (convert AML to internal format and the
      reverse) and the debug code to dump internal resource
      descriptors are fully table-driven, reducing code and data
      size and improving maintainability.
      
      The OSL interfaces for Acquire and Release Lock now use a
      64-bit flag word on 64-bit processors instead of a fixed
      32-bit word. (Alexey Starikovskiy)
      
      Implemented support within the resource conversion code
      for the Type-Specific byte within the various ACPI 3.0
      *WordSpace macros.
      
      Fixed some issues within the resource conversion code for
      the type-specific flags for both Memory and I/O address
      resource descriptors. For Memory, implemented support
      for the MTP and TTP flags. For I/O, split the TRS and TTP
      flags into two separate fields.

      Completed a major overhaul of the Resource Manager code -
      specifically, optimizations in the area of the AML/internal
      resource conversion code. The code has been optimized to
      simplify and eliminate duplicated code, CPU stack use has
      been decreased by optimizing function parameters and local
      variables, and naming conventions across the manager have
      been standardized for clarity and ease of maintenance (this
      includes function, parameter, variable, and struct/typedef
      names.)
      
      All Resource Manager dispatch and information tables have
      been moved to a single location for clarity and ease of
      maintenance. One new file was created, named "rsinfo.c".
      
      The ACPI return macros (return_ACPI_STATUS, etc.) have
      been modified to guarantee that the argument is
      not evaluated twice, making them less prone to macro
      side-effects. However, since there exists the possibility
      of additional stack use if a particular compiler cannot
      optimize them (such as in the debug generation case),
      the original macros are optionally available.  Note that
      some invocations of the return_VALUE macro may now cause
      size mismatch warnings; the return_UINT8 and return_UINT32
      macros are provided to eliminate these. (From Randy Dunlap)
      
      Implemented a new mechanism to enable debug tracing for
      individual control methods. A new external interface,
      acpi_debug_trace(), is provided to enable this mechanism. The
      intent is to allow the host OS to easily enable and disable
      tracing for problematic control methods. This interface
      can be easily exposed to a user or debugger interface if
      desired. See the file psxface.c for details.
      
      acpi_ut_callocate() will now return a valid pointer if a
      length of zero is specified - a length of one is used
      and a warning is issued. This matches the behavior of
      acpi_ut_allocate().

      Fixed a problem within the Resource Manager where
      support for the Generic Register descriptor was not fully
      implemented.  This descriptor is now fully recognized,
      parsed, disassembled, and displayed.
      
      Restructured the Resource Manager code to utilize
      table-driven dispatch and lookup, eliminating many of the
      large switch() statements.  This reduces overall subsystem
      code size and code complexity.  Affects the resource parsing

      and reduced code size.

      Implemented support to ignore an attempt to install/load
      a particular ACPI table more than once. Apparently there
      exists BIOS code that repeatedly attempts to load the same
      SSDT upon certain events. Thanks to Venkatesh Pallipadi.
      
      Restructured the main interface to the AML parser in
      order to correctly handle all exceptional conditions. This
      will prevent leakage of the OwnerId resource and should
      eliminate the AE_OWNER_ID_LIMIT exceptions seen on some
      machines. Thanks to Alexey Starikovskiy.
      
      Support for "module level code" has been disabled in this
      version due to a number of issues that have appeared
      on various machines. The support can be enabled by
      defining ACPI_ENABLE_MODULE_LEVEL_CODE during subsystem
      compilation. When the issues are fully resolved, the code

      The use of the CPU stack in the debug version of the
      subsystem has been considerably reduced.  Previously, a
      debug structure was declared in every function that used
      the debug macros.  This structure has been removed in
      favor of declaring the individual elements as parameters
      to the debug functions.  This reduces the cumulative stack
      use during nested execution of ACPI function calls at the
      cost of a small increase in the code size of the debug
      version of the subsystem.  With assistance from Alexey
      Starikovskiy and Len Brown.
      
      Added the ACPI_GET_FUNCTION_NAME macro to enable the
      compiler-dependent headers to define a macro that will
      return the current function name at runtime (such as
      __FUNCTION__ or _func_, etc.) The function name is used
      by the debug trace output.  If ACPI_GET_FUNCTION_NAME
      is not defined in the compiler-dependent header, the
      function name is saved on the CPU stack (one pointer per
      function.) This mechanism is used because apparently there
      exists no standard ANSI-C defined macro that that returns
      the function name.
      
      Alexey Starikovskiy redesigned and reimplemented the
      "Owner ID" mechanism used to track namespace objects
      created/deleted by ACPI tables and control method
      execution.  A bitmap is now used to allocate and free the
      IDs, thus solving the wraparound problem present in the
      previous implementation.  The size of the namespace node
      descriptor was reduced by 2 bytes as a result.
      
      Removed the UINT32_BIT and UINT16_BIT types that were used
      for the bitfield flag definitions within the headers for
      the predefined ACPI tables.  These have been replaced by
      UINT8_BIT in order to increase the code portability of
      the subsystem.  If the use of UINT8 remains a problem,
      we may be forced to eliminate bitfields entirely because
      of a lack of portability.
      
      Alexey Starikovksiy enhanced the performance of
      acpi_ut_update_object_reference.  This is a frequently used
      function and this improvement increases the performance
      of the entire subsystem.
      
      Alexey Starikovskiy fixed several possible memory leaks
      and the inverse - premature object deletion.

      ACPICA 20050617:
      
      Moved the object cache operations into the OS interface
      layer (OSL) to allow the host OS to handle these operations
      if desired (for example, the Linux OSL will invoke the
      slab allocator).  This support is optional; the compile
      time define ACPI_USE_LOCAL_CACHE may be used to utilize
      the original cache code in the ACPI CA core.  The new OSL
      interfaces are shown below.  See utalloc.c for an example
      implementation, and acpiosxf.h for the exact interface
      definitions.  Thanks to Alexey Starikovskiy.
      	acpi_os_create_cache
      	acpi_os_delete_cache
      	acpi_os_purge_cache
      	acpi_os_acquire_object
      	acpi_os_release_object
      
      Modified the interfaces to acpi_os_acquire_lock and
      acpi_os_release_lock to return and restore a flags
      parameter.  This fits better with many OS lock models.
      Note: the current execution state (interrupt handler
      or not) is no longer passed to these interfaces.  If
      necessary, the OSL must determine this state by itself, a
      simple and fast operation.  Thanks to Alexey Starikovskiy.
      
      Fixed a problem in the ACPI table handling where a valid
      XSDT was assumed present if the revision of the RSDP
      was 2 or greater.  According to the ACPI specification,
      the XSDT is optional in all cases, and the table manager
      therefore now checks for both an RSDP >=2 and a valid
      XSDT pointer.  Otherwise, the RSDT pointer is used.
      Some ACPI 2.0 compliant BIOSs contain only the RSDT.
      
      Fixed an interpreter problem with the Mid() operator in the
      case of an input string where the resulting output string
      is of zero length.  It now correctly returns a valid,
      null terminated string object instead of a string object
      with a null pointer.
      
      Fixed a problem with the control method argument handling
      to allow a store to an Arg object that already contains an
      object of type Device.  The Device object is now correctly
      overwritten.  Previously, an error was returned.
      
      ACPICA 20050624:
      
      Modified the new OSL cache interfaces to use ACPI_CACHE_T
      as the type for the host-defined cache object.  This allows
      the OSL implementation to define and type this object in
      any manner desired, simplifying the OSL implementation.
      For example, ACPI_CACHE_T is defined as kmem_cache_t for
      Linux, and should be defined in the OS-specific header
      file for other operating systems as required.
      
      Changed the interface to AcpiOsAcquireObject to directly
      return the requested object as the function return (instead
      of ACPI_STATUS.) This change was made for performance
      reasons, since this is the purpose of the interface in the
      first place.  acpi_os_acquire_object is now similar to the
      acpi_os_allocate interface.  Thanks to Alexey Starikovskiy.
      
      Modified the initialization sequence in
      acpi_initialize_subsystem to call the OSL interface
      acpi_osl_initialize first, before any local initialization.
      This change was required because the global initialization
      now calls OSL interfaces.
      
      Restructured the code base to split some files because
      of size and/or because the code logically belonged in a
      separate file.  New files are listed below.
      
        utilities/utcache.c	/* Local cache interfaces */
        utilities/utmutex.c	/* Local mutex support */
        utilities/utstate.c	/* State object support */

      Implemented support to execute Type 1 and Type 2 AML
      opcodes appearing at the module level (not within a control
      method.)  These opcodes are executed exactly once at the
      time the table is loaded. This type of code was legal up
      until the release of ACPI 2.0B (2002) and is now supported
      within ACPI CA in order to provide backwards compatibility
      with earlier BIOS implementations. This eliminates the
      "Encountered executable code at module level" warning that
      was previously generated upon detection of such code.
      
      Fixed a problem in the interpreter where an AE_NOT_FOUND
      exception could inadvertently be generated during the
      lookup of namespace objects in the second pass parse of
      ACPI tables and control methods. It appears that this
      problem could occur during the resolution of forward
      references to namespace objects.
      
      Added the ACPI_MUTEX_DEBUG #ifdef to the
      acpi_ut_release_mutex function, corresponding to the same
      the deadlock detection debug code to be compiled out in
      the normal case, improving mutex performance (and overall
      subsystem performance) considerably.  As suggested by
      Alexey Starikovskiy.
      
      Implemented a handful of miscellaneous fixes for possible
      memory leaks on error conditions and error handling
      control paths. These fixes were suggested by FreeBSD and
      the Coverity Prevent source code analysis tool.
      
      Added a check for a null RSDT pointer in
      acpi_get_firmware_table (tbxfroot.c) to prevent a fault
      in this error case.

      Implemented support for PCI Express root bridges
      -- added support for device PNP0A08 in the root
      bridge search within AcpiEvPciConfigRegionSetup.
      acpi_ev_pci_config_region_setup().
      
      The interpreter now automatically truncates incoming
      64-bit constants to 32 bits if currently executing out
      of a 32-bit ACPI table (Revision < 2). This also affects
      the iASL compiler constant folding. (Note: as per below,
      the iASL compiler no longer allows 64-bit constants within
      32-bit tables.)
      
      Fixed a problem where string and buffer objects with
      "static" pointers (pointers to initialization data within
      an ACPI table) were not handled consistently. The internal
      object copy operation now always copies the data to a newly
      allocated buffer, regardless of whether the source object
      is static or not.
      
      Fixed a problem with the FromBCD operator where an
      implicit result conversion was improperly performed while
      storing the result to the target operand. Since this is an
      "explicit conversion" operator, the implicit conversion
      should never be performed on the output.
      
      Fixed a problem with the CopyObject operator where a copy
      to an existing named object did not always completely
      overwrite the existing object stored at name. Specifically,
      a buffer-to-buffer copy did not delete the existing buffer.
      
      Replaced "interrupt_level" with "interrupt_number" in all
      GPE interfaces and structs for consistency.

      Fixed three cases in the interpreter where an "index"
      argument to an ASL function was still (internally) 32
      bits instead of the required 64 bits.  This was the Index
      argument to the Index, Mid, and Match operators.
      
      The "strupr" function is now permanently local
      (acpi_ut_strupr), since this is not a POSIX-defined
      function and not present in most kernel-level C
      libraries. References to the C library strupr function
      have been removed from the headers.
      
      Completed the deployment of static
      functions/prototypes. All prototypes with the static
      attribute have been moved from the headers to the owning
      C file.
      
      ACPICA 20050329 from Bob Moore
      
      An error is now generated if an attempt is made to create
      a Buffer Field of length zero (A CreateField with a length
      operand of zero.)
      
      The interpreter now issues a warning whenever executable
      code at the module level is detected during ACPI table
      load. This will give some idea of the prevalence of this
      type of code.
      
      Implemented support for references to named objects (other
      than control methods) within package objects.
      
      Enhanced package object output for the debug
      object. Package objects are now completely dumped, showing
      all elements.
      
      Enhanced miscellaneous object output for the debug
      object. Any object can now be written to the debug object
      (for example, a device object can be written, and the type
      of the object will be displayed.)
      
      The "static" qualifier has been added to all local
      functions across the core subsystem.
      
      The number of "long" lines (> 80 chars) within the source
      has been significantly reduced, by about 1/3.
      
      Cleaned up all header files to ensure that all CA/iASL
      functions are prototyped (even static functions) and the
      formatting is consistent.
      
      Two new header files have been added, acopcode.h and
      acnames.h.
      
      Removed several obsolete functions that were no longer
      used.

      Implement the framework for binding physical devices
      with ACPI devices. A physical bus like PCI bus
      should create a 'acpi_bus_type', with:
      
      .find_device:
              For device which has parent such as normal PCI devices.
      
      .find_bridge:
              It's for special devices, such as PCI root bridge
      	or IDE controller.  Such devices generally haven't a
      	parent or ->bus. We use the special method
      	to get an ACPI handle.
