While I understand that this is temporary solution, but will this be
sufficient to make sure we don't enter acpi_suspend_enter ?

A brief look at acpi_suspend_enter showed access to write to
ACPI_BITREG_SCI_ENABLE which might just explode. But if you are sure that
it will not be executed, then it should be fine for now.
