#8043 closed bug (fixed)

Add option to copy DSDT during boot, to work around some buggy BIOSes

This is a tiny patch against the latest SVN to optionally tell the Intel ACPI library to make a copy of the DSDT during boot. Some BIOSes (including mine) replace or corrupt it halfway through booting, confusing the kernel and causing booting to fail.
