I have another series to add kernel support for a system identifier
sysfs entry, which I sent after this series:

https://lore.kernel.org/linux-acpi/1580210059-199540-1-git-send-email-john.garry@huawei.com/

It is different to what I am relying on here - it uses a kernel soc
driver for firmware ACPI PPTT identifier. Progress is somewhat blocked
at the moment however and I may have to use a different method:

Sorry, I don't fully follow.

Are you suggesting that we could load the specific JSONs tables for a
system from the host filesystem?

Thanks,
John
