But we don't do it today, do we?

And still calling _dispatch() should not be incorrect even if the GPE
has been enabled already at this point.  Worst case it just will
queue up the execution of _Lxx/_Exx which may or may not do anything

And BTW this is all done under acpi_gbl_gpe_lock so acpi_ev_gpe_detect()
will block on it if run concurrently and we've checked the status, so
we know that the GPE *should* be dispatched, so I sort of fail to see
the problem.
