My fault, just ignore it (it was late, what can I say).

The ACPI code in the x86 tree is currently not compatible with what's
in the IA-64 tree.  So the IA-64 patch restores the ACPI files from
the IA-64 tree.  I don't know why or how this came to be and Intel is
looking into it.  (Yeah, it's a major pain...)
