I guess I'm missing something, but if we are providing ACPI tables to a PVH
DomU rsdp_paddr should be set, or else we are failing to comply with our own
start info specification.

Hm, right, that might be an option. Do you know how hardware-reduced ACPI
implementations (which IIRC also don't have a SCI interrupt) deliver events
to the OS? Or it's simply not possible in that case?
