I am adding a set of patches to unify the DSDT for all Family 14 boards.  This fix will be a part of that patch set.  I expect to push these patches out soon.  Thanks Paul for catching these.

Subject: DSDT: New warnings after adding _OSC method

Dear coreboot folks,

the patches adding the _OSC method to the DSDT, like [1][2][3],
introduce the following ACPI warnings [4][5], which went unnoticed by
the reviewers, myself included.

            IASL       coreboot-builds/amd_persimmon/mainboard/amd/persimmon/dsdt.ramstage.o
            CC         mainboard/amd/persimmon/get_bus_conf.ramstage.o

        dsdt.ramstage.asl  1143:    Method(_OSC,4)
        Warning  1081 -                       ^ Reserved method must return a value (Buffer required for _OSC)

        Compilation complete. 0 Errors, 2 Warnings, 0 Remarks, 494 Optimizations

It should be as simple as adding the following as commented in
[1 (Mar 14 12:23 AM)] already.

        } Else {
            // Unrecognized UUID

I am not submitting a patch, as the Sage folks are currently doing some
unification work, I do not want to interfere with.
