efi / ACPI: load SSTDs from EFI variables
This patch allows SSDTs to be loaded from EFI variables. It works by specifying the EFI variable name containing the SSDT to be loaded. All variables with the same name (regardless of the vendor GUID) will be loaded. Note that we can't use acpi_install_table and we must rely on the dynamic ACPI table loading and bus re-scanning mechanisms. That is because I2C/SPI controllers are initialized earlier then the EFI subsystems and all I2C/SPI ACPI devices are enumerated when the I2C/SPI controllers are initialized.
