    ACPI / OSI: Add OEM _OSI strings to disable NVidia RTD3

    A number of Dell systems require an OEM _OSI string "Linux-Dell-Video"
    as a BIOS workaround to disable RTD3 which causes systems hangs when
    NVidia graphics cards are installed.  The affected Dell systems are
    with system IDs: 0818, 0819, 0820, 0850, 0851, 086F, 0870, 0885 and

    The form of the OEM _OSI strings is defined by each OEMs and is
    discussed in Documentation/acpi/osi.txt.
