SubjectRE: [PATCH] ACPI/APEI: Add BERT data driver

That was my first thought :-)

But I got stuck on how to name things. The BERT entry appears in
/sys/firmware/acpi/tables/ ... but the code doesn't know anything special
about "BERT", it just iterates over all the tables and makes them all

I thought about making it /sys/firmware/acpi/tables/, but that
seemed very ugly (this file isn't a "table", so why does it appear in the
"tables" directory? So maybe /sys/firmware/acpi/table-data/BERT? Now
the driver has to make another directory.
