For an acpi change no need to cc all those folks and lists. Just cc
the following for that change:

Bob Moore <robert.moore@xxxxxxxxx>
Lv Zheng <lv.zheng@xxxxxxxxx>
Rafael J. Wysocki <rafael.j.wysocki@xxxxxxxxx>

Why 6 files and not 2 for a prototype update? I wouldn't go touch
existing callers of acpi_evaluate_dsm() if they have been living with
the potential truncation all this time there's no need to change.

Yes, send that patch with the series so the acpi developers have the
context for what motivated the change.
