[PATCH 5/5] ACPI / ACPICA: Fix sysfs GPE interface

From: Rafael J. Wysocki
Date: Tue Jun 08 2010 - 05:01:27 EST

From: Rafael J. Wysocki <rjw@xxxxxxx>

The sysfs interface allowing user space to disable/enable GPEs
doesn't work correctly, because a GPE disabled this way will be
re-enabled shortly by acpi_ev_asynch_enable_gpe() if it was
previosuly enabled by acpi_enable_gpe() (in which case the
corresponding bit in its enable register's enable_for_run mask is

To address this issue make the sysfs GPE interface use
acpi_enable_gpe() and acpi_disable_gpe() instead of acpi_set_gpe()
so that GPE reference counters are modified by it along with the
values of GPE enable registers.
