We have ID registers, like CPUID, but for various reasons those aren't
sufficient to guarantee that IMPLEMENTATION DEFINED features can be
If we want to support this, we'd certainly need something in DT.
For ACPI systems I'd expect this to be hidden behind APEI or similar,
with the kernel staying well clear of these registers.
