I am not asking someone to fix it. I tried my best to explain that
acpi_get_name() does not lead any performance issue when it is called in
the error paths of ACPI drivers, and why we have to call it to obtain an
object path info for error analysis. If you still believe there is a
performance issue in calling acpi_get_name() under this context, please
help us understand where the performance bottleneck is in the code. (I
hope you just concerned it because it has "acpi_" prefix...) I will then
work on the issue with the ACPI CA team.
