Are you saying that you think "acpi_irq_to_vector" is the right name?
What does "vector" mean?  The return value of that function is in
fact a Linux IRQ, and is passed to request_irq() and free_irq().  So
I think the correct name is "acpi_SOMETHING_to_irq".  If you don't
like "interrupt", you can propose something else.  I just think it's
misleading for the name to contain "to_vector", when it's really
doing "to_irq".
