Subject: [PATCH] ACPI: WMI: Handle duplicate GUIDs

It would appear that in BIOS's with nVidia hooks, the GUID
05901221-D566-11D1-B2F0-00A0C9062910 is duplicated. For now, the simplest
solution is to just ignore any duplicate GUIDs. These particular hooks are not
currently supported/ used in the kernel, so whoever does that can figure out
what the 'right' solution should be (if there's a better one).

Fixes kernel bugzilla #14846

Len,

Can you get this out ASAP, as it fixes a regression with the WMI autoloading code.
