Please send changes to this file separately.

This one belongs to ACPICA and there is a special process for
modifying ACPICA files.

I have read the process. So, does that means, we never send acpica patch
to kernel mail list, they only can be sent to acpica project?

You can send them to linux-acpi, but then you need to CC the ACPICA
maintainers and development mailing list *and* make sure that the
patch modifies the ACPICA code only (ie. no mixed ACPICA and
non-ACPICA changes in one go, please).

Thanks,
Rafael

Ok, we've got the changes to actypes.h in ACPICA.
Thanks,
