    ACPI: Fix lockdep false positives in acpi_power_off()
    All ACPICA locks are allocated by the same function,
    acpi_os_create_lock(), with the help of a local variable called
    "lock".  Thus, when lockdep is enabled, it uses "lock" as the
    name of all those locks and regards them as instances of the same
    lock, which causes it to report possible locking problems with them
    when there aren't any.
    To work around this problem, define acpi_os_create_lock() as a macro
    and make it pass its argument to spin_lock_init(), so that lockdep
    uses it as the name of the new lock.  Define this macron in a
    Linux-specific file, to minimize the resulting modifications of
    the OS-independent ACPICA parts.
    This change is based on an earlier patch from Andrea Righi and it
    addresses a regression from 2.6.39 tracked as
