1) reverting the patch in acpica that puts all names in uppercase

I think the easiest and less risky way to fix this is by adding a
new hardware id (as proposed in the thread's patch), as it doesn't
add any side effects (that the other solutions might add), and it
doesn't break the behaviour of the old code.

I've lost track of the implementation state here - if all names are
upper-cased in acpica, why is this not already matching?

Names are upper-cased in acpica, so the device is reported as FNBT0000. But in the driver it's named FnBT0000, and that's why it doesn't match.
