What compilers are building this that do not support designated
initializers? Also, couldn't this be made into a macro so it could be
supported in either case?

#ifdef __GNUC__
# define ACPI_SLEEP_FUNCTIONS(legacy, extended) { \
.legacy_function = legacy, \
.extended_function = extended, \
}
#else
# define ACPI_SLEEP_FUNCTIONS(legacy, extended) { legacy, extended }
#endif

...

static struct acpi_sleep_functions acpi_sleep_dispatch[] = {
ACPI_SLEEP_FUNCTIONS(
ACPI_HW_OPTIONAL_FUNCTION(acpi_hw_legacy_sleep),
acpi_hw_extended_sleep),
...
