I'm not sure this is the right way to go about it, although I haven't 
looked at your code yet.  APCI is a big animal, and I think it's going 
to take a proper design to get it right.

The key components would appear to be a full AML parser, an object 
manager to manage the ACPI namespace, and an AML interpreter to run the 
AML methods.

Both Doug Rabson and myself have been tinkering with this, and there's 
someone that's been looking at an AML parser/interpreter in the last 
couple of weeks.  At this point in time, the parser and object manager 
are the most vital components.
