I created an ASL file and located what appeared to be the code block where that value was set. I followed the statements and nothing appeared to be unusual. (Of course, I might have missed something because I don't have much experience with ACPI programming.)
One thing I did notice, however, is when I compiled that file and got two errors arising from:
Store (Local0, Local0)
where Local0 hadn't been defined in that part of the code. I have no idea how that came about, but it successfully compiled after I commented out that statement. (A bug in the original code, perhaps?)
