I see what happened.  Here's the entire entry from acpidump:

            Device(MOUE) {
                Name(_HID, 0x0190d94d)
                Name(_CID, 0x130fd041)
                Name(_CRS, Buffer(0x5) {0x22, 0x0, 0x10, 0x79, 0x0 })

Looks like I inadvertantly used the _HID entry for EC0_, not MOUE.

Yet, it still worked, in that psm0 was detected and functions as well as it
ever did.

Sorry for the misdirection.
