well, would you mind saying which one exactly you think of for removing?

Thinking of removing debug.acpi.disabled since it is mostly redundant
with the hint approach.  But more investigation should be done before
claiming that.

ok, means that all acpi subdrivers can not be disabled any more in boot.loader and would be switched as hints on or off, right

is this already possible, I mean disabling the acpi subsets as hints?

let me ask what would be the advantage of using hints instead? Any timeline for this or just a thought at this time?

> grep resource_disabled /sys/dev/acpica/*.c
/sys/dev/acpica/acpi.c:    if (resource_disabled("acpi", 0))
/sys/dev/acpica/acpi_perf.c:    if (resource_disabled("acpi_perf", 0))
/sys/dev/acpica/acpi_throttle.c: if (resource_disabled("acpi_throttle", 0))

> grep acpi_disabled /sys/dev/acpica/*.c
/sys/dev/acpica/acpi.c:    if (!acpi_disabled("bus"))
/sys/dev/acpica/acpi.c:    if (acpi_disabled("children"))
/sys/dev/acpica/acpi.c:     if (acpi_disabled("children"))
/sys/dev/acpica/acpi.c:acpi_disabled(char *subsys)
/sys/dev/acpica/acpi_acad.c:    if (acpi_disabled("acad") ||
/sys/dev/acpica/acpi_button.c:    if (acpi_disabled("button") ||
/sys/dev/acpica/acpi_cmbat.c:    if (acpi_disabled("cmbat") ||
/sys/dev/acpica/acpi_cpu.c: if (acpi_disabled("cpu") || acpi_get_type(dev) != ACPI_TYPE_PROCESSOR) /sys/dev/acpica/acpi_ec.c: if (acpi_get_type(dev) != ACPI_TYPE_DEVICE || acpi_disabled("ec"))
/sys/dev/acpica/acpi_hpet.c:    if (acpi_disabled("hpet") ||
/sys/dev/acpica/acpi_isab.c:    if (acpi_disabled("isab") ||
/sys/dev/acpica/acpi_lid.c:    if (acpi_disabled("lid") ||
/sys/dev/acpica/acpi_pci_link.c:        if (acpi_disabled("pci_link") ||
/sys/dev/acpica/acpi_pcib_acpi.c:    if (acpi_disabled("pcib") ||
/sys/dev/acpica/acpi_pcib_pci.c:        acpi_disabled("pci"))
/sys/dev/acpica/acpi_resource.c:    if (acpi_disabled("sysresource") ||
/sys/dev/acpica/acpi_smbat.c:   if (acpi_disabled("smbat") ||
/sys/dev/acpica/acpi_thermal.c: if (acpi_get_type(dev) == ACPI_TYPE_THERMAL && !acpi_disabled("thermal")) { /sys/dev/acpica/acpi_timer.c: if (acpi_disabled("timer") || (acpi_quirks & ACPI_Q_TIMER) ||
/sys/dev/acpica/acpi_video.c:   if (acpi_disabled("video") ||

So it looks like debug.acpi.disabled=thermal is the only way to do it for now. We may want to move to resource_disabled later, but that's for future discusion.
