[ 08/22] ACPI / battery: Fix parsing _BIX return value

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman

3.0-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Lan Tianyu <tianyu.lan@xxxxxxxxx>

commit 016d5baad04269e8559332df05f89bd95b52d6ad upstream.

The _BIX method returns extended battery info as a package.
According the ACPI spec (ACPI 5, Section, the first member
of that package should be "Revision". However, the current ACPI
battery driver treats the first member as "Power Unit" which should
be the second member. This causes the result of _BIX return data
parsing to be incorrect.

Fix this by adding a new member called 'revision' to struct
acpi_battery and adding the offsetof() information on it to
extended_info_offsets[] as the first row.
