dumping the dsdt to a file, then iasl -d and iasl -tc will produce the same
thing, but with some sort of optimizations. Disabling the optimizations,
with -oa should produce exactly the same output as gendsdt, except for
whitespace, the copyright header, and some dsdt header info (compiler, etc).
You're entirely correct about genfadt vs iasl though, and now you've got me
thinking that two utiliities is a better idea.
