It looks like the q35 DSDT code was forked from SeaBIOS some time
back.  In the last year or so several improvements were made to the
SeaBIOS DSDT code to separate out devices into distinct sections and
to reduce the amount of macro duplication of dsdt code.  It would be a
shame to lose these improvements, at least for q35.

Looking at the final q35 dsdt code (patches 6-8), the only thing that
stands out to me as being notably different from the current code is
irq handling.  I do wonder if there is an alternative to mass
replacing the dsdt code for a different irq scheme.
