As I've learned the hard way yesterday, acpi_dev_present() is undefined
if the kernel is compiled without CONFIG_ACPI, so you made the right
call splitting that out into intel_acpi.c and my suggested simplification
was wrong. Sorry for the noise. :-/

I'd still suggest to invoke acpi_dev_present() with the string literal
"INT3392" in intel_acpi.c:intel_detect_acpi_rst() though, or at least
replace "static const struct acpi_device_id irst_ids[]" with
"static const char*".

Best regards,
