3.13.11-ckt22 -stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: "Rafael J. Wysocki" <rafael.j.wysocki@xxxxxxxxx>

commit b9a5e5e18fbf223502c0b2264c15024e393da928 upstream.

Since acpi_reserve_resources() is defined as a device_initcall(),
there's no guarantee that it will be executed in the right order
with respect to the rest of the ACPI initialization code. On some
systems this leads to breakage if, for example, the address range
that should be reserved for the ACPI fixed registers is given to
the PCI host bridge instead if the race is won by the wrong code

Fix this by turning acpi_reserve_resources() into a void function
and calling it directly from within the ACPI initialization sequence.
