patch to acpitable.[ch] to fix the issue

The attached patch,courtesy Matt Domsch, will recognize ASF! as valid acpi
table header signature..

s/KERN_INFO/KERN_DEBUG/ in the first hunk when you apply to the RH 
kernel tree please.  It's purely a debug message intended for kernel 
develoeprs, not system administrators.

Comment 4 Matt Domsch 2004-09-22 11:11:56 EDT
component is kernel, not acpi.
