And nothing like that ever happened (I think that's good).

MP tables are a relatively easy problem. The next step could be reusing
the data for PIR (and extending the devicetree model where necessary).

Once our devicetree is suitable for these two, it should also be good
enough for ACPI. That's one thing less to worry about when extending

Hardware doesn't require it, but some software is happier when having
meaningful legacy tables.
