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

------------------

From: Mattia Dongili <malattia@linux.it>

commit dcbeec264d73b7228ffdfe767eab69b2353099b1 upstream.

SN06 in some cases returns an Integer instead of a buffer. While the
code handling the return value was trying to cope with the difference,
the memcpy call was not making any difference between the two types of
acpi_object union. This regression was introduced in 3.5.
While there also rework the return value logic to improve readability.
