Does it indicate whether this particular version of qemu has correctly
implemented the hard reset at 0xcf9? If so, we need to put that in as

It seems that there's a *lot* which isn't fully described in the QOM
tree. Do we really want to add it all, just so that ACPI tables can be
reliably generated from it? 

As we add new types of hardware and even fix/adjust features like the
examples above, we'll also have to implement the translation from QOM to
ACPI tables. And we'll have to do so in more than one place, in projects
with a completely different release cycle. This would be *so* much
easier if the code which actually generates the ACPI tables was *in* the
qemu tree along with the "hardware" that those tables describe.
