From: Al Stone <al.stone@linaro.org>

To enable the hardware reduced mode of ACPI on some platforms (such as
ARM), we need to modify the kernel code and set ACPI_REDUCED_HARDWARE
to TRUE in the ACPICA source.

This can be done more resonably by introducing a kernel config item
to enable/disable ACPI_REDUCED_HARDWARE.  We can then change the kernel
config instead of having to modify the kernel source directly to enable
the reduced hardware mode of ACPI.

Lv Zheng suggested that this configuration item does not belong in ACPICA,
the upstream source for much of the ACPI internals, but rather to the
Linux kernel itself.  Hence, we introduce this flag so that we can make
ACPI_REDUCED_HARDWARE configurable.  For the details of the discussion,
please refer to: http://www.spinics.net/lists/linux-acpi/msg46369.html
