    ... so you opt to create the big mess in the kernel. Great.

    And it does not even fixes a real problem, but getting
    mmconfig or the numa bus discovery to work is not really a too serious
    issue anyways. At best it is the icing on the cake to enable
    some relatively obscure functionality and be a little more
    efficient, but nothing really fundamental.

    But for those things just expecting a working modern BIOS is quite
    reasonable.
