4.8-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Vishal Verma <vishal.l.verma@intel.com>

commit c09f12186d6b03b798832d95289af76495990192 upstream.

Commit 209851649dc4 "acpi: nfit: Add support for hot-add" added
support for _FIT notifications, but it neglected to verify the
notification event code matches the one in the ACPI spec for
"NFIT Update". Currently there is only one code in the spec, but
once additional codes are added, older kernels (without this fix)
will misbehave by assuming all event notifications are for an
NFIT Update.
