Understand. Yes, we certainly don't want to put a copy of factory ACPI
in our SVN UNLESS: someone wants to contact the manufacturer and gets
If they do get permission, I suggest that a copy of the email granting
permission be dropped in the mainboard directory. I have had
experience with the following:

(we didn't :-)
So you have to be careful once you get the ok ... either get ACPI with
a GPL-from-vendor note in it or leave a nice audit trail, preferably
with a copy of the email in comments.
