As before, the LEVEL_1_ID and LEVEL_2_ID table members are too open to 
interpretation in the spec to generate a consistent form soc_id and 
family_id for all platforms.

As such, I was trying to limit to known PPTT implementations and how 
they should be interpreted. Obviously that's *far* from ideal.

So what's your idea? Just always put LEVEL_1_ID and LEVEL_2_ID in soc 
driver family_id and soc_id fields, respectively?

Thanks,
John
