Thread-topic: [PATCH][HVM][ACPI] Introduce a compatible rev1 FADT to fix ACPI Windows 2000 installation
This patch adds a revision 1 FADT in ACPI, and relinks the original rev.
4 FADT only to XSDT. It avoids a buffer overflow in the initialization
of Window 2000 ACPI HAL (pre ACPI 2.0 OS), and thus enables the
installation and boot. This compatibility practice is also used in
hardware, please refer to:
