[Bug 191137] Re: [Hardy] ACPI Embedded Controller (EC) stops boot when kernel boot 'quiet' option is enabled or AC power is connected

This sounds to me like my suspicions where right. Somehow the code to
install the boot_ec handlers is called before the context has been
created. Both places acpi_scan_init() (which tries to install the
handlers) and acpi_ec_dsdt_probe() (which allocates the structure and
would create the context) run concurrently but do not protect against
this. I tried to reopen the kernel bugzilla but this could only be done
by TJ or ykzhao (wrote an email to him). In the meantime I try to think
of a way around that.
