This change isn't described in the commit log, but seems to be the cause
of the build error identified by the kernel build bot that is fixed
later in this series. I'm wondering whether this should be in a
different patch, maybe "ACPI: Check _STA present bit before making CPUs
not present" ?

Or maybe my brain isn't working properly (due to being Covid positive.)
Any thoughts, Jonathan?

RMK's Patch system:
FTTP is here! 80Mbps down 10Mbps up. Decent connectivity at last!
