Sorry I missed this part.

Here are the constraints for existing hardware:

1. All the existing CRB start only hardware has the iomem covering the
control area and registers for multiple localities.
2. All the existing ACPI start hardware has only the control area.

If you assume that SSDT does not have malicous behavior caused by either
a BIOS bug or maybe a rootkit, then the current patch works for all the
existing hardware.

To counter-measure for unexpected behavior in non-existing hardware and
buggy or malicious firmware it probably make sense to use crb_map_res to
validate the part of the CRB registers that is not part of the control
area.

Doing it in the way you proposed does not work for ACPI start devices.

For them it should be done in the same way as I'm doing in the existing
patch as for ACPI start devices the address below the control area are
never accessed. Having a separate crb_map_res for CRB start only devices
is sane thing to do for validation.
