27 May 2016. Summary of changes for version 20160527:
This release is available at https://acpica.org/downloads
1) ACPICA kernel-resident subsystem:
Temporarily reverted the new arbitrary bit length/alignment support in AcpiHwRead/AcpiHwWrite for the Generic Address Structure. There have been a number of regressions with the new code that need to be fully resolved and tested before this support can be finally integrated into ACPICA. Apologies for any inconveniences these issues may have caused.
The ACPI message macros are not configurable (ACPI_MSG_ERROR, ACPI_MSG_EXCEPTION, ACPI_MSG_WARNING, ACPI_MSG_INFO, ACPI_MSG_BIOS_ERROR, and ACPI_MSG_BIOS_WARNING). Lv Zheng.
Fixed a couple of GCC warnings associated with the use of the -Wcast-qual option. Adds a new return macro, return_STR. Junk-uk Kim.
Example Code and Data Size: These are the sizes for the OS-independent acpica.lib produced by the Microsoft Visual C++ 9.0 32-bit compiler. The debug version of the code includes the debug output trace mechanism and has a much larger code and data size.
