Good point.

Well, this pretty much means we can't copy those things.

I know that.

Having to evaluate _CRS and creating a buffer, converting the output into
ACPI resources and so on every time we need to look into the device's current
resources is totally inefficient. We _need_ to cache the _CRS output.

Now, because of the pointers in certain types of resources, we can't
make copies of the resource objects used by acpi_walk_resources() which
makes that function totally unuseful to us.

I suppose we can just do acpi_get_current_resources() and play with the
buffer returned by it. That won't be nice, but still better than what we
have.

Thanks,
Rafael
