What:		/sys/firmware/acpi/bgrt/
Date:		January 2012
Contact:	Matthew Garrett <mjg@redhat.com>
Description:
		The BGRT is an ACPI 5.0 feature that allows the OS
		to obtain a copy of the firmware boot splash and
		some associated metadata. This is intended to be used
		by boot splash applications in order to interact with
		the firmware boot splash in order to avoid jarring
		transitions.

		image: The image bitmap. Currently a 32-bit BMP.
		status: 1 if the image is valid, 0 if firmware invalidated it.
		type: 0 indicates image is in BMP format.
		version: The version of the BGRT. Currently 1.
		xoffset: The number of pixels between the left of the screen
			 and the left edge of the image.
		yoffset: The number of pixels between the top of the screen
			 and the top edge of the image.

What:		/sys/firmware/acpi/hotplug/
Date:		February 2013
Contact:	Rafael J. Wysocki <rafael.j.wysocki@intel.com>
Description:
		There are separate hotplug profiles for different classes of
		devices supported by ACPI, such as containers, memory modules,
		processors, PCI root bridges etc.  A hotplug profile for a given
		class of devices is a collection of settings defining the way
		that class of devices will be handled by the ACPI core hotplug
		code.  Those profiles are represented in sysfs as subdirectories
		of /sys/firmware/acpi/hotplug/.

		The following setting is available to user space for each
		hotplug profile:

		enabled: If set, the ACPI core will handle notifications of
			hotplug events associated with the given class of
			devices and will allow those devices to be ejected with
			the help of the _EJ0 control method.  Unsetting it
			effectively disables hotplug for the correspoinding
			class of devices.

		The value of the above attribute is an integer number: 1 (set)
		or 0 (unset).  Attempts to write any other values to it will
		cause -EINVAL to be returned.

What:		/sys/firmware/acpi/hotplug/force_remove
Date:		May 2013
Contact:	Rafael J. Wysocki <rafael.j.wysocki@intel.com>
Description:
		The number in this file (0 or 1) determines whether (1) or not
		(0) the ACPI subsystem will allow devices to be hot-removed even
		if they cannot be put offline gracefully (from the kernel's
		viewpoint).  That number can be changed by writing a boolean
		value to this file.

What:		/sys/firmware/acpi/interrupts/
Date:		February 2008
Contact:	Len Brown <lenb@kernel.org>
Description:
		All ACPI interrupts are handled via a single IRQ,
		the System Control Interrupt (SCI), which appears
		as "acpi" in /proc/interrupts.

		However, one of the main functions of ACPI is to make
		the platform understand random hardware without
		special driver support.  So while the SCI handles a few
		well known (fixed feature) interrupts sources, such
		as the power button, it can also handle a variable
		number of a "General Purpose Events" (GPE).

		A GPE vectors to a specified handler in AML, which
		can do a anything the BIOS writer wants from
		OS context.  GPE 0x12, for example, would vector
		to a level or edge handler called _L12 or _E12.
		The handler may do its business and return.
		Or the handler may send send a Notify event
		to a Linux device driver registered on an ACPI device,
		such as a battery, or a processor.

		To figure out where all the SCI's are coming from,
		/sys/firmware/acpi/interrupts contains a file listing
		every possible source, and the count of how many
		times it has triggered.

		$ cd /sys/firmware/acpi/interrupts
		$ grep . *

		Root has permission to clear any of these counters.  Eg.

		All counters can be cleared by clearing the total "sci":
		# echo 0 > sci

		None of these counters has an effect on the function
		of the system, they are simply statistics.

		Besides this, user can also write specific strings to these files
		to enable/disable/clear ACPI interrupts in user space, which can be
		used to debug some ACPI interrupt storm issues.

		Note that only writting to VALID GPE/Fixed Event is allowed,
		i.e. user can only change the status of runtime GPE and
		Fixed Event with event handler installed.

		Let's take power button fixed event for example, please kill acpid
		and other user space applications so that the machine won't shutdown
		when pressing the power button.
