think SeaBIOS should continue to do the above once the tables

generate the tables correctly on its own.
The loader script provided by qemu has fixup instructions, which is
needed to fixup pointers to other acpi tables. The idea is to use that
mechanism to also allow th firmware to fixup addresses like pmbase in
the qemu-generated tables.
Yes, but why should QEMU tell SeaBIOS to modify the table for pmbase
when it can just modify the table itself?
