Uuh, this leads to problems for files including <asm/acpi.h> directly:
acpi_physical_address won't be defined, and including <acpi/actypes.h>
from arch/x86/include/asm/acpi.h will lead to:

#error unknown ACPI_MACHINE_WIDTH

This can only be avoided by including <linux/acpi.h> from <asm/acpi.h>
which seems to be the wrong layering.

So I could:

a) modify the sources including <asm/acpi.h> to use <linux/acpi.h>
b) don't use acpi_physical_address but either u64 or unsigned long.
c) ?

What would be your preference?
