The WMI device is not used on OS X. Your deletions in patched files used on OS X will not affect the ACPI used on Windows.
Not sure I understand what you mean. I'm trying to chase down a weird issue in OSX (single boot on this laptop), where sleep/shutdown locks up when the laptop has been running for 2 or 3 hours. Since I have no clue as to what the cause of the lockup is, I'm trying to clean up the DSDT of anything that seems like a good candidate to trigger a lockup. Since the WMI device gets a lot of attention from various EC queries, I figured it could help to get rid of it.
