Just a side note.

Actually I do not see anything wrong with that _PSS except that ASL seems to have
been passed through a mangler and it makes reading the code hard.
_PSS is a method and it is evaluated as a method in acpi_perf, the method returns
a package.  I am not sure what exactly you meant when you said that powernow
expects a static table.  I do not see why the return value can not be dynamically
constructed while _PSS is evaluated and why that would affect any of our code.
