I see you have made a lot of progress, that looks nice. I commented on the PCI
stuff already, I think that needs more work and should be split out so it does
not hold up the architecture merge. Also as I commented, the series needs more
review from the EFI/ACPI, signal, and module maintainers among others.

It would be good if you could add more information in the patch descriptions
for each patch to summarize the discussions that have led to changes or
whenever you got comments but argued that the current version is necessary.
