HI Michael,

Thanks for reviewing my commit :)

1. It doesn't solve any problem, but I see 2 purposes. First, if a table is corrupted we shouldn't use the table (that may prevent big problems). Second, (and why I implemented the check) when manipulating ACPI tables it's good to know that the tables are 'probably' not corrupted. For example, I'm working with MADT in ipxe, but I had to debug. So first thing I did was checking the checksum.

2. Debug message fixed.

3. Nice, I didn't think the compiler would optimize the copy_from_user() calls. Done

3a. Good idea, so it's done
