Hi, Johannes,

I missed the discussion about the multicast issues.
You don't need to reserve a family and group ID for ACPI. I'll rework
this on your patches.:)

But I don't know when these mutlicast patches can be merged while I hope
the function of exporting ACPI event via genetlink can be added ASAP.

I'm okay to hold off on this patch if you think the multicast patches
can be merged soon. Or else I tend to apply it first and send an
additional patch together with your patches later.
