Andy, are you next going to suggest renaming all the files with i2c?

$ git ls-files | grep i2c | wc -l

Please do not use the pedantic I²C, 7 bit ascii is just fine here.

My keyboard does not have a superscripted 2 key, and yes, I know
how to use it with multiple keypresses but it's irrelevant.

Same deal with acpi filenames. Everyone already recognizes acpi is
actually ACPI and there isn't any confusion in anyone's mind.

$ git ls-files | grep acpi | wc -l

Please stop being a pedant on these trivial things.
It's unimportant and has almost no value.
