By the way, on x86 we already load some ACPI tables through
so putting all other tables in one place will just make things more
Yes, ACPI is messy, and pc-specific, but IMO that's life: it's better to
give guests as much help as we can if it's messy, not push the messiness
out for guests to handle.
