ACPI: Rename ACPI processor device bus ID
Some BIOS re-use the same processor bus id in different scope: \_SB.SCK0.CPU0 \_SB.SCK1.CPU0 But the (deprecated) /proc/acpi/ interface assumes the bus-id's are unique, resulting in an OOPS when the processor driver is loaded: WARNING: at fs/proc/generic.c:590 proc_register+0x148/0x180() Hardware name: Sunrise Ridge proc_dir_entry 'processor/CPU0' already registered Call Trace: [<ffffffff8023f7ef>] warn_slowpath+0xb1/0xe5 [<ffffffff8036243b>] ? ida_get_new_above+0x190/0x1b1 [<ffffffff803625a8>] ? idr_pre_get+0x5f/0x75 [<ffffffff8030b2f6>] proc_register+0x148/0x180 [<ffffffff8030b4ff>] proc_mkdir_mode+0x3d/0x52 [<ffffffff8030b525>] proc_mkdir+0x11/0x13 [<ffffffffa0014b89>] acpi_processor_start+0x755/0x9bc [processor] Rename the processor device bus id. And the new bus id will be generated as the following format: CPU+ CPU ID For example: If the cpu ID is 5, then the bus ID will be "CPU5". If the CPU ID is 10, then the bus ID will be "CPUA". Yes, this will change the directory names seen in /proc/acpi/processor/* on some systems. Before this patch, those directory names where totally arbitrary strings based on the interal AML device strings. http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=13612 Signed-off-by: Zhao Yakui <yakui.zhao@intel.com> Signed-off-by: Len Brown <len.brown@intel.com>
