I think its useful yes. The system will be stable, an in fact should run
exactly as it did before, but since the errata indicates this should be fixed in
BIOS, its a reminder to the admin that you should investigate an update, or take
action in manually disabling iommu on the command line

Its also in keeping with the way this was structured previously.
