Actually I wonder about the usefulness of this patch in either form: Since ACPI
on ARM64 is only for servers, I would very much expect them to always come with
PCI, either physical host bridges with attached devices, or logical PCI functions
used to describe the on-SoC I/O devices. Even in case of virtual machines, you'd
normally use PCI as the method to communicate data about the virtio channels.

Can you name a realistic use-case where you'd want ACPI but not PCI?
