Description of problem:
When I tried to compile a kernel with CONFIG_ACPI_DEBUG=y enabled in .config the following error occurs while compiling

  CC      drivers/acpi/processor_perflib.o
drivers/acpi/processor_perflib.c: In function ‘acpi_processor_get_psd’:
drivers/acpi/processor_perflib.c:622: error: expected ‘)’ before string constant
drivers/acpi/processor_perflib.c:622: error: too few arguments to function ‘acpi_ut_debug_print’
make[2]: *** [drivers/acpi/processor_perflib.o] Error 1
make[1]: *** [drivers/acpi] Error 2
make: *** [drivers] Error 2

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. cp configs/kernel-2.6.18-x86_64.config .config
2. enable CONFIG_ACPI_DEBUG in .config
