That's true afaik. But what IMHO is more important: Upstream doesn't
want it, too. See:

Those that have problems with ACPI/DSDT IMHO should fill bugs in the
kernel bugzilla to get the damn acpi interpreter fixed. Nothing is
getting better in the long term if everybody privately works around
problems and uses a patched firmware without fixing the underlying

Or convince the kernel developers that patching the dsdt is the best
solution and that the dsdt-in-initrd-patch needs to be merged into the
kernel. Maybe then it's getting enabled in Fedora.
