new ACPI registry updates for 2017

Since I last looked[1], there has been one new company added to the ACPI registry (Marvell), and one new/updated ACPI spec (CSRT). There are also multiple new Plug and Play registry entries.

It appears the PNP_ID exported spreadsheet is not yet up-to-date with web page. By comparison, there were many more PNP IDs registered. But the ACPI exported spreadsheet is. Yet the PNP web page’s last-updated date is wrong, and the ACPI web page’s date is correct. It would be really helpful if the URL for the company would be included in the table, as well as an URL to each ACPI spec. And announce their updates. And it would be really nice if OEMs/ODMs/IHVs/IBVs/OSVs listed what ACPI version and tables they supported (yes, wishful thinking).
