Subject[PATCH v4 4/4] ACPI / boot: Don't setup SCI on HW reduced platforms
As per note in 5.2.9 Fixed ACPI Description Table (FADT) chapter of ACPI
specification OSPM will ignore fields related to the ACPI HW register
interface, one of which is SCI_INT.

Follow the spec and ignore any configuration done for interrupt line
defined by SCI_INT if FADT specifies HW reduced platform.

HW reduced platform would be still able to use SCI in case it provides
an override record in MADT table.
