2.9.  RHEA-2009:1275: iasl

iasl, a new package that compiles ASL into AML, is now available. This package is a build requirement for KVM.
iasl compiles ACPI Source Language (ASL) into ACPI Machine Language (AML); it can also be used to de-compile AML for debugging purposes. AML is suitable for inclusion as Differentiated System Description Tables (DSDT) in system firmware. In addition, iasl is also used to build the BIOS images inside the KVM userspace source. As such, iasl is included in this release as a build requirement of the kvm package. (BZ#488614)
