soc drivers seem to live in drivers/soc (non-arm32, anyway), so I 
decided on this location. But drivers/acpi would also seem reasonable now.

Right, and I think that it can be dropped. As discussed with Sudeep, I 
was concerned how this PPTT ID structure could be interpreted, and had a 
whitelist as a conservative approach.

OK, but I'm thinking that having a soc driver can be useful as it is 
common to DT, and so userspace only has to check a single location. And 
the soc driver can also cover multiple-chip systems without have to 
reinvent that code for ACPI core. And it saves adding a new ABI.

Agreed.
