[PATCH 4.13 11/33] ACPI / scan: Enable GPEs before scanning the namespace

4.13-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Rafael J. Wysocki <rafael.j.wysocki@xxxxxxxxx>

commit eb7f43c4adb4a789f99f53916182c3401b4e33c7 upstream.

On some systems the platform firmware expects GPEs to be enabled
before the enumeration of devices and if that expectation is not
met, the systems in question may not boot in some situations.

For this reason, change the initialization ordering of the ACPI
subsystem to make it enable GPEs before scanning the namespace
for the first time in order to enumerate devices.
