  | Do we really want this kind of change for such a software?

Sure; it allows us to map which particular version of the relevant
files were compiled into the kernel, just like any other source file.
This is especially relevant if we've made changes to the files,
but useful if we haven't.

Correct; usually we have "foo2netbsd" scripts often perform the bulk
of the "heavy lifting" of preparing vendor code for import into

In this case, ACPI-CA doesn't have one; if a new version is required,
we can deal with it then.

Even so, merging the changes between vendor branches isn't that
difficult, and that will retain the addition of __KERNEL_RCSID()
and the /* $NetBSD$ */ comments.  It's not rocket surgery :-)
