Ok, please find the patch at the URL below
which eliminates the old 4.x-derived ACPI driver and add new config lines
device acpi # ACPI base driver
device acpi_toshiba # ACPI support driver for Toshiba laptops
What it does are:
- move most part of /sys/dev/acpica5/Makefile.inc into /sys/conf/acpi.mk
- variables SYSACPICA_DIR, OSACPI_DIR are named to ACPICA_DIR and ACPI_MI_DIR
and made relative to /sys (or $SYSDIR) so as they can be shared between
kernel and module builds
- remove 4.x ACPI lines and add acpica5 lines to /sys/conf/files* .
- adjust ACPI driver build wrapper and ACPI tools to use /sys/conf/acpi.mk
I only tested it on x86 machines around me (because I don't have amd64).
