Aha! Good hint, thanks :) Maybe this is the problem?:

rename the generic fsync implementations
We don't name our generic fsync implementations very well currently.
The no-op implementation for in-memory filesystems currently is called
simple_sync_file which doesn't make too much sense to start with,
the the generic one for simple filesystems is called simple_fsync
which can lead to some confusion.
This patch renames the generic file fsync method to generic_file_fsync
to match the other generic_file_* routines it is supposed to be used
with, and the no-op implementation to noop_fsync to make it obvious
what to expect. In addition add some documentation for both methods.

Bernhard's patch fixed the second problem, but here's the info:
ASL Optimizing Compiler version 20100428 [May 5 2010]
Supports ACPI Specification Revision 4.0a
"works for me":
ASL Optimizing Compiler version 20090123 [Apr 17 2010]
