I got stuck on your %pOF conversion, which broke the vio.c code, because of:

- if (!strcmp(parent_node->full_name, "/ibm,platform-facilities"))
+ if (!strcmp(parent_node->full_name, "ibm,platform-facilities"))

But full_name hasn't been changed yet.

But patch 1 here should fix that, so I'll pull it all together and try
and get it tested.
