Hi Rolf:
	I have check the log. I2C ACPI operation region targets to I2C controller which 
has one ACPI node in the ACPI table and is associated with one I2C adapter. 
Graphic with one ACPI handle registers several I2C adapters. This causes attach 
data to the ACPI handle with the same handler several time. The ACPICA function 
will return ALREADY EXIST error code and causes the log you mentioned. There is 
no I2C ACPI operation region under graphic device node and so not break 
function. To avoid these noise logs, I make them only appear under dynamic debug 
mode in the my V3 patchset.
