It's a simple error, that linux chose to look over.

The code essentially created (not sure if that's 100% valid acpi syntax, 
probably not, but you'll get the idea):

Scope(\_PR_) {
    Name(\_PR_.CPU0) { etc }

That nesting is wrong, it should be either

Scope(\_PR_) {
    Name(CPU0) { etc }


Name(\_PR_.CPU0) { etc }
