I think we can introduce a Kconfig such as CONFIG_ACPI_OS_NAME_LINUX,
selected by ARM64 and change ACPI_OS_NAME to "Linux" when
CONFIG_ACPI_OS_NAME_LINUX defined. (we can not add CONFIG_ARM64 in
ACPICA code directly since it will be used by windows too)

some code like below:

the ACPICA core driver as you suggested, sorry for the confusion.

No, not at all. I prefer "Linux"
In include/acpi/acconfig.h, when ACPI_OS_NAME defined, it says:
"OS name, used for the _OS object.  The _OS object is essentially
obsolete,..."
for some legacy reasons, we needed  "Microsoft Windows NT", but ACPI
for ARM64 on linux is totally new, I think we can change it to
"Linux" when CONFIG_ARM64 as you suggested.

Thanks
