Before this commit acpi_ev_execute_reg_methods() had special handling
to handle "orphan" (no matching OpRegion declared) _REG methods for EC
nodes.

On Intel Cherry Trail devices there are 2 possible ACPI OpRegions for
accessing GPIOs. The standard GeneralPurposeIo OpRegion and the Cherry
Trail specific UserDefined 0x9X OpRegions.

Having 2 different types of OpRegions leads to potential issues with
checks for OpRegion availability, or in other words checks if _REG has
been called for the OpRegion which the ACPI code wants to use.

Except for the "orphan" EC handling, ACPICA core does not call _REG on
an ACPI node which does not define an OpRegion matching the type being
registered; and the reference design DSDT, from which most Cherry Trail
DSDTs are derived, does not define GeneralPurposeIo, nor UserDefined(0x93)
OpRegions for the GPO2 (UID 3) device, because no pins were assigned ACPI
controlled functions in the reference design.

Together this leads to the perfect storm, at least on the Cherry Trail
based Medion Akayo E1239T. This design does use a GPO2 pin from its ACPI
code and has added the Cherry Trail specific UserDefined(0x93) opregion
to its GPO2 ACPI node to access this pin.

But it uses a has _REG been called availability check for the standard
GeneralPurposeIo OpRegion. This clearly is a bug in the DSDT, but this
does work under Windows. This issue leads to the intel_vbtn driver
reporting the device always being in tablet-mode at boot, even if it
is in laptop mode. Which in turn causes userspace to ignore touchpad
events. So iow this issues causes the touchpad to not work at boot.

This commit fixes this by extending the "orphan" _REG method handling
to also apply to GPIO address-space handlers.

Note it seems that Windows always calls "orphan" _REG methods so me
may want to consider dropping the space-id check and always do
"orphan" _REG method handling.
