 Log Message:
 PR# kern/42139: ACPI WMI: new driver
 Import acpiwmi(4) from Jukka Ruohonen. From the PR:
 Attached is a driver that implements ACPI WMI API:
 The WMI is used to provide a generic interface for OEMs to use certain
 platform/laptop-specific additions to the standard ACPI in a somewhat
 portable way. These can be hotkeys for additional buttons, different event
 handlers (wireless kill switch, lid switch, etc.), and so on. At least HP
 and Acer use it by default nowadays.
 The benefit of this interface would be portability. For an example, instead
 of hpqlb(4) that works only with certain HP models, we could have a generic
 HP WMI-driver that should work in theory across all HP laptops. On many new
 laptops WMI may also be the only way to access laptop/manufacturer-specific
