The long-term plan is to generate the acpi tables in qemu, where qemu
can adjust them to actually match the virtual hardware emulated.  Then
qemu will make them available via fw_cfg interface, where any firmware
can pick them up (seabios, coreboot, ovmf, whatever).

Step one in this path (where we are at the moment) is to reduce
dependencies between acpi tables and seabios internals.
