Comment (by ttcoder):

 The [http://fxr.watson.org/fxr/source/dev/acpi_support/acpi_ibm.c ibm
 (lenovo)] file does not seem terribly long or complex, though I suppose
 it's not reasonable for me to assume I can adapt it to haiku in a couple
 hours for my lenovo R61 ? I suppose there could be license problems
 (though it's probably liberal BSD/MIT), or more work than it seems to
 adapt it to the Haiku coding styleguide, or simply that the API changes
 are extensive or not easy to guess for a complete ACPI/hardware/kernel-
 land newbie ? Oh and let's not forget, I'm not setup for compiling the
 kernel and/or its add-ons and drivers :-P .  Ok better forget it.
