I have no idea what you are trying to do here, it feels like you are
flailing around trying to set something that almost no bios/firmware
sets or cares about.

If setting the proper node is a requirement, make sure your firmware
does this and then all should be fine. Otherwise just use the default
node like what happens today, right?
