Good one.

So this has:

         Device (CIND)
         {
             Name (_HID, "INT33D3" /* Intel GPIO Buttons */)  // _HID: Hardware I
             Name (_CID, "PNP0C60" /* Display Sensor Device */)  // _CID: Compati
             Method (_STA, 0, Serialized)  // _STA: Status
             {
                 If ((OSYS >= 0x07DC))
                 {
                     Return (0x0F)
                 }

                 Return (Zero)
             }
         }

And OSYS >= 0x07DC checks for "Windows 2012" which Linux does advertise,
so despite not having a tablet-mode(switch) the XPS 9360 still has a
PNP0C60 ACPI device and will report 0xf (present) as status for it,
so a acpi_dev_present("PNP0C60", NULL, -1) check will succeed on it.

Conclusion: such a check is not a valid alternative for checking DMI
chassis-types (and from that pov this series thus is ready for merging).

Regards,

Hans
