SeaBIOS already accepts ACPI tables from Coreboot or UEFI, and queries
them to find things that it needs.

Even if you get this working such that SeaBIOS and OVMF can both be
built with ACPI tables that match the last qemu you built, that doesn't
solve the issue of running a firmware that *wasn't* built to precisely
match the version of qemu you're running today.
