Hmm, explicitly initializing acpi_force_load in acpi.c seems to do
the trick for me.

nm shows:
ffffffff80df0098 B acpi_force_load
ffffffff80d135e0 D acpi_force_load

I didn't want to pollute my source tree...  And I only want to force
it for this one machine (out of 7).

The point I was trying to make was in the nm output.
Without 'int acpi_force_load = 0;' instead of 'int acpi_force_load;'
acpi_force_load is placed either in the .bss rather than .data section.

Ah!  I missed that.  Thanks.

Perhaps this should be changed "officially" ?
