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

------------------

From: Lv Zheng <lv.zheng at intel.com>

commit 61db45ca21630f5ab7f678d54c5d969c21647854 upstream.

The original code was lost accidently, it was not generated along with the
following commit of mechanism improvements and thus not get merged:

  Commit: d5a36100f62fa6db5541344e08b361b34e9114c5
  Subject: ACPICA: Add mechanism for early object repairs on a per-name basis

  Adds the framework to allow object repairs very early in the
  return object analysis. Enables repairs like string->unicode,
  etc.

This patch restores the implementation of the NULL element repair code for
ACPI_RTYPE_NONE.  In the original design, ACPI_RTYPE_NONE is defined to
collect simple NULL object repairs.
