[PATCH v2] platform/x86: wmi: Make input buffer madatory when evaulating methods
Posted by Armin Wolf 1 week, 6 days ago
The ACPI-WMI specification declares in the section "ACPI Control Method
Naming Conventions and Functionality for Windows 2000 Instrumentation"
that a WMxx control method takes 3 arguments: instance, method id and
argument buffer.
This is also the case even when the underlying WMI method does not
have any input arguments.

So if a WMI driver evaluates a WMI method without passing an input
buffer, ACPICA will log a warning complaining that the third argument
is missing.

Prevent this by checking that a input buffer was passed, and return
an error if this was not the case.

Tested on a Asus PRIME B650-Plus.

Thank you for your contribution, it has been applied to my local
review-ilpo branch. Note it will show up in the public
platform-drivers-x86/review-ilpo branch only once I've pushed my
local branch there, which might take a while.
