2007-10-12[IA64] add driver for ACPI methods to call native firmwareBjorn Helgaas
This driver for HPQ5001 devices installs a global ACPI OpRegion handler. AML methods can use this OpRegion to call native firmware entry points. ACPI does not define a mechanism for AML methods to call native firmware interfaces such as PAL or SAL. This OpRegion handler adds such a mechanism. After the handler is installed, an AML method can call native firmware by storing the arguments and firmware entry point to specific offsets in the OpRegion. When AML reads the "return value" offset from the OpRegion, this handler loads up the arguments, makes the firmware call, and returns the result.

Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history, even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about 3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good infrastructure for it. Let it rip!
