This can be for "ACPI: ARM64: support for ACPI_TABLE_UPGRADE":

As for this patchset, Rafael ACKed the ACPI part:

but I can not find any acknowledge from him that he is ready to merge the series.
On the contrary, he expressed his doubt that he is "the right maintainer to send this to":

I asked the ARM64 people, they said they prefer Rafael to do that:

I interpreted the silence from Rafael as unwillingness to pull the series
and thought it's OK to ask you.

I am sorry if this looks rude for Rafael, I did not mean that.

Thank you
