This is the WHEA UUID, right?

So we fail if the platform doesn't implement WHEA...

And then tear down GHES. This seems wrong. A platform could predicate
APEI functionality on the ACPI spec APEI indication (which we currently
don't pass) without implementing WHEA, but with this patch we'd refuse
to enable GHES support? We should probably try both the standard method
and the WHEA method and only disable GHES if both fail.

(Also, are there any other sideeffects of indicating that we support
WHEA?)
