Alexander E. Patrakov <patrakov@xxxxxxxxx> reports two bugs related to
dock station support on Sony VAIO VPCZ23A4R. Actually there are at least
four bugs related to Sony VAIO VPCZ23A4R dock support.
1) can't correctly detect hotplug slot for dock state
2) resource leak on undocking
3) resource allocation failure for dock devices
4) one bug in intel_snd_hda driver

The first patch fixes issue 1, and the second patch fixes issue 2.
These two patches, if accepted, should be material for stable branches
Patch 3-9 are code improvement for ACPI and dock driver.

I have found the root cause for issue three, but still working on
solutions, and seems can't be solve in short time. So please help
to review and test patches for issue 1) and 2) first.

Hi Alexander, could you please help to test the whole patchset?
