As the comments in the hpacel(4) say, it is problematic exactly because of
this.  (The laptop I wrote it for did not provide any information about the
interrupt source via ACPI, so I couldn't make it function properly.)

So by all means, if you make this chip work by non-ACPI code, let's use that
and deprecate hpacel(4). You could perhaps still call some auxilliary
ACPI-methods (like turning a laptop light on when the interrupt is
registered, etc.).
