from being installed for PCI host bridge objects. From Toshi Kani.

– ACPICA update to upstream version 20131115. This contains bug fixes
mostly (loop termination fix for the get AML length function, fixes
related to namespace node removal and debug output). From Bob Moore,
Tomasz Nowicki and Lv Zheng.

– Removal of incorrect inclusions of internal ACPICA header files by
non-ACPICA code from Lv Zheng.

– Fixes for the ACPI sysfs interface exposing tables to user space
from Daisuke Hatayama and Jeremy Compostella.

– Assorted ACPI and cpufreq cleanups from Sachin Kamat and Al Stone.

– cpupower tool fix and man page from Thomas Renninger.

-Jiri Kosina and HID :

– fix compat ioctl leak in uhid, by David Herrmann

in hid-sony driver, by Sven Eckelmann

– support from various new device IDs by Benjamin Tissoires and KaiChung
Cheng

-Greg Kroah-Hartman has driver core/sysfs and TTY serial fixes :

Here are 3 patches for sysfs issues that have been reported. Well, 1
patch really, the first one is reverted as it’s not really needed (the
correct fix is coming in through the different driver subsystems
instead.) But that 1 sysfs fix is needed, so this is still a good thing
to pull in now.
###############################################
Here are some tty/serial driver fixes for reported issues in 3.13-rc2.

The n_gsm “fix” was reverted as it was found to not be correct.
Hopefully this will be resolved in a future pull request, but as there’s
really only one user of this line setting, it’s not a big deal…
