[RFC PATCH v4] ACPICA/Events: Add support to ensure GPE is disabled by default for handlers.

From: Lv Zheng
Date: Thu Nov 20 2014 - 01:45:18 EST

On some platforms, GPE is not disabled by default after ACPI hardware is
enabled. This confuses GPE drivers. This patch adds support to disable GPE
by default for GPE handler drivers.
