Hmm, NFIT has a 2 byte type and a 2 byte length, so its one more
permutation. I happened to reinvent sub-table parsing in the NFIT
driver, but it might be nice in the future to refactor that to use the
common parsing.

It seems inefficient to make all checks keep asking "is HMAT?".
Especially if we want to extend this to other table types should we
instead setup and pass a pair of function pointers to parse the
sub-table format?
