Good suggestion, I will change it in next version.

To be compatible with old Windows, some BIOS will expose such a behavior.
It put the PCI root bus built in a physical processor directly under /_SB
instead of the module device for the processor. According to my observation,
new BIOSes have changed that behavior and build ACPI namespace according to
physical topology.

Loading of dynamic ACPI table is an issue, it should be handled. But we have
left that on the TODO list for simplicity at first stage. When supporting
that in future, we just need to scan the subtree starting from the slot.

Thanks
