If defective firmware uses a Device declaration for a processor, but
does not supply a _UID method, Myron's patch will attempt to evaluate
_UID, the evaluation will fail because _UID doesn't exist, we'll print
a message, and return -ENODEV.

That's the same way other errors in acpi_processor_get_info() are
handled.  Are you proposing that this one (a Device declaration
without _UID) should be handled differently?  How would you
suggest that it be handled?
