This will of course most likely be replaced by _DSD values. I just
hardcoded for now as _DSD is not yet in the kernel and issues around
maintenance of bindings are not solved (unless this happened at KS where
I was not present).

if (!acpi_disabled) is the equivalent if I understand you correctly.

But people until this point had expressed a preference for checking
.of_node and ACPI_HANDLE() to this point. This is obviously mutable
though depending on community preference.
