1. i386: machine named as "Dell Inspiron Mini 1010"
2. x86_64: machine named as "HP Compaq 8200 Elite SFF PC"
3. default: kernel configuration with following items enabled:
All hardware drivers related to the machines of i386/x86_64
All "drivers/acpi" configurations
All "drivers/platform" drivers
All other drivers that link the APIs provided by ACPICA subsystem

This is too late to go in during the current merge window, but I'll
queue it up and send a separate pull request for 4.6 with it next

I'll fix up the whitespace breakage in the first patch (it is easy
enough to fix up manually), but as Len said, please fix the process to
avoid such things in the future.

I wasn't able to spot this series in linux-next, epsecially patch 03/30:
"ACPICA: Headers: Add new constants for the DBG2 ACPI table"

Can you please clarify what happened?

Thanks a lot,
