I get sane output from lstopo when applying these patches and booting

*However*, while hacking on the firmware that exposes the table, I
noticed that a malformed structure (incorrect size) can get the parser
in an infinite loop, hanging the boot after

[ 8.244281] Serial: 8250/16550 driver, 4 ports, IRQ sharing enabled
[ 8.251780] Serial: AMBA driver
[ 8.255042] msm_serial: driver initialized
[ 8.259752] ACPI PPTT: Cache Setup ACPI cpu 0
[ 8.264121] ACPI PPTT: Looking for data cache
[ 8.268484] ACPI PPTT: Looking for CPU 0's level 1 cache type 0

so I guess the parsing code could be made a bit more robust?
