Possibly. But ACPI is running very early in the game. Where would we
hook it up?
This would also establish ACPI as a pretty hard requirement. There
should be an alternative, too.
Using ACPI here would be nicely transparent though, hiding firmware
specifics in the firmware code. I like that approach.
