So this changes behavior a little bit for debug messages. Previously, this
message only triggered if acpi_get_handle failed, now it will trigger if the
method exists but fails, whereas that was silent previously (see below). I think
printing in either case is fine, but we should adjust the message to reflect the
new code flow.
