Simple answer to that:

TI don't (as far as I know) publish defined ID spaces so no one can
use their ID without risking stepping on an ID in use by someone else.
I would assume there is an AAEON module on this board (pretty common
for embedded boards) so they have assigned an ID from their namespace
as they can know it doesn't clash with anyone else.

The sad truth is that for ACPI things aren't really governed by the
spec, but rather by what people put in bios tables.

Now, I know is some cases the ID has been assigned pretty much to provide
an easy way to test the device as there are no known IDs in use for
the part.  In those cases we should be a little careful and it would be
nice to keep to the spec.  If companies actually published a
canonical list of their ID usage it would certainly make this nicer.
I have access to the Hisilicon list for example, but it's not (as far
as I know) public.

Some of the more random IDs are real ones found in the wild (such as
the one in this case).  Reality of a lot of these parts is that we will
never get them to fix the Bios.

I can rock up at an ACPI WG meeting and rant about it (mostly I don't as
they are in the middle of the night UK time) but in reality the smaller
companies don't have anyone attending so it wouldn't help much.

One thing we could do perhaps is start recording as comments, boards
on which a particular ID is found, or when we know it is the suggested
value from the manufacturer of a device.

Jonathan

P.S Technically I'm a member of the ASWG part of UEFI who is responsible
for that standard (on behalf of Huawei, though I never actually attend as
the call are in the middle of the night), but there are only so many things
one can try to solve + to be honest inconsistent namespaces don't
really hurt anyone other than requiring additional IDs to be added when
a new one shows up in the wild.
