Subject: Re: Regression in module wmi since 2.6.32 (bisected to commit
	1caab3c)

Hm. I think this is an artifact of the way we're treating WMI right now. 
The assumption is that the interfaces are defined in namespace by their 
GUID, whereas in fact they're defined by their ACPI namespace. Can we 
avoid this by just setting the parent to the ACPI device's corresponding 
Linux device (if present) and including the WMI device's name in the 
dev_set_name call?
