When an ACPI netlink event is received by acpid, the ACPI device

is not initialized, an empty string is being passed:

       netlink:  PNP0C14:01 000000d0 00000000

Fix this by initializing the ACPI device class during probe.

Hmm, I'm not sure if you are supposed to do this when you are not an
acpi_driver's add() function.
You aren't.

I believed otherwise, as the ACPI AC driver (which is a platform_driver) does the same thing.
Seems i was wrong on that.

Rafael, do you have any comments on this ?
I'm not quite sure why this is done here.

The initialization of the ACPI device class is being done to access this value later when sending an
ACPI netlink event like other ACPI drivers do.

However since you clarified that doing this outside of an acpi_driver's add() function is forbidden
i think it would indeed be better to just pass the value directly without touching the ACPI device class.
