[Qemu-devel] [PATCH 1/4] i386/acpi-build: more traditional _UID and _HID

From: Laszlo Ersek
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH 1/4] i386/acpi-build: more traditional _UID and _HID for PXB root buses
Date: Sat, 6 Jun 2015 01:46:26 +0200

The ACPI specification permits the _HID and _UID objects to evaluate to
strings. (See "6.1.5 _HID (Hardware ID)" and "6.1.12 _UID (Unique ID)" in
the ACPI v6.0 spec.)

With regard to related standards, the UEFI specification can also express
a device address composed from string _HID and _UID identifiers, inside
the Expanded ACPI Device Path Node. (See "9.3.3 ACPI Device Path", Table
49, in the UEFI v2.5 spec.)

However, numeric (integer) contents for both _HID and _UID are more
traditional. They are recommended by the UEFI spec for size reasons:

  [...] the ACPI Device Path node is smaller and should be used if
  possible to reduce the size of device paths that may potentially be
  stored in nonvolatile storage [...]

External tools support them better (for example the --acpi_hid and
--acpi_uid options of "efibootmgr" only take numeric identifiers).
Finally, numeric _HID and _UID contents are existing practice in the QEMU

This patch was tested with a Fedora 20 LiveCD and a preexistent Windows
Server 2012 R2 guest. Using "acpidump" and "iasl" in the Fedora guest, we
get, in the SSDT:

> Scope (\_SB)
> {
>   Device (PC04)
>   {
>     Name (_UID, 0x04)  // _UID: Unique ID
>     Name (_HID, EisaId ("PNP0A03") /* PCI Bus */)  // _HID: Hardware ID
