Subject[PATCH 3/3] ACPI / APEI: HEST: Don't set hest_disable if table not found
During initialisation, the driver sets hest_disable to 1 if the HEST
table is not found. This value is checked during the GHES driver
initialisation and in turn leads to a message such as -

[ 3.460067] GHES: HEST is not enabled!

being output in the bootlog. The message appears even on systems that do
not have the HEST table or APEI support.

Update the initialisation to skip setting hest_disable when the HEST
table is not found.
