I'm not sure this approach is correct - for instance, from a Dell

Method (_L0D, 0, NotSerialized)
Store (SMI (0xC6, 0x00), Local0)
If (And (Local0, 0x01))
Notify (\_SB.PCI0.AZAL, 0x02)

If (And (Local0, 0x02))
Notify (\_SB.PCI0.EHCI, 0x02)

If (And (Local0, 0x04))
Notify (\_SB.PCI0.EHC2, 0x02)

All these devices share a GPE, but registering only one notify handler
would result in us missing the notification in some cases. I also
suspect that this should wait until the GPE rework is done.
