Actually, this happens when you clone coreboot into a dir where its
parent dir has a dot in it, and compile for any board without touching
the payload defaults:

python ./tools/acpi_extract.py
/home/idwer/tmp/coreboot.fresh/build/seabios/out/acpi-dsdt.lst >
Traceback (most recent call last):

    line = self.readline()
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/fileinput.py", line 344, in readline
    self._file = open(self._filename, self._mode)
