You mean the logic needed to access/allow hal to access /proc/acpi/events? No,
not really. Acpid still does/can use that file if it exists. You don't have to
use th enetlink layer. But with hal not started by initscript anymore what's
the right way to restart it? Interestingly enough the whole code does nothing
right now and apparently no problem has come up. To be safe I take it acpid has
to be started before dbus, right?
