I am not sure it's a must.
We can always tweak the parser if there are slight differences
between ACPI and virtio formats.

But we do want the virtio format used here to be approved by the virtio
TC, so it won't change.

Eric, Jean-Philippe, does one of you intend to create a github issue
and request a ballot for the TC? It's been posted end of August with no
changes ...
