Well, the bootloader could call HashLogEvent or HashLogExtendEvent via
the 16bit BIOS interface.  Does the code have to worry about a
bootloader (or OS) that manually adds entries to the acpi tcpa table
and then calls one of the HashLogEvent bios functions?  It sounds like
this table is owned by the BIOS and thus the BIOS could fully cache
the last pointer.
