Aside: ACPI5.1 does define the Platform Communication Channel and CPC
(Collaborative Processor Performance Control). Some details need to be
fleshed out there for practical 64-bit ARMv8 server systems, but the
underpinnings and mechanisms are in place in the 5.1 specification that
can be built upon over time to achieve practical S-State equivalence.
