That is really disappointing that these patch sets are not being copied
to the appropriate people (ACPI).

I seem to remember I've already stated on at least a couple of
occasions that these patch sets which add ACPI support to phylib need
to be copied to ACPI people.  I guess if ACPI people have been omitted,
there will be a few more patch series iterations.  Then there's that
all the discussion that has already happened is not known to ACPI
people, so we're probably doomed to repeating at least some of that.

FTTP is here! 40Mbps down 10Mbps up. Decent connectivity at last!
