Can you explain in the changelog what happens for the acpi=off case? Does this
mean we fall back to using data from the dtb instead, or will it just not work?

If I understand correctly, this option makes sense on PC systems that will
still be able to boot using the legacy BIOS services and implicit assumptions
about the hardware, but that never works on arm64.
