Hello once more!

Here is my patch to activate ACPI on M57SLI.
This patch solves the following issues on this mainboard:

* ACPI support is added
* PowerNow! for fam10 CPU's is activated
* Soft-Poweroff works

What this patch does not:
* ACPI support which is accepted by windows.

Take care on the following:
*** WARNING ***
* This patch needs as dependency the IRQ mptable fix patch[1] (which is right 
now not committed) in order to work!

I have ATM no space to try a windows installation, and I don't own a windows 
license and therefore I didn't cared on windows related ACPI problems.

It should be quite easy to complete this, that windows also will like it.
If anyone is interested in doing that, please contact me.
I've an IRC-Log from the discussion with Rudolf Marek related to ACPI on 
windows and what will be needed to get it right.

Please be so kindly and review it, so that it can get commited.
