Hi Dan,

Great to see you getting this discussion going so fast and in
general the approach makes sense to me.

I'm a little confused why HMAT has anything to do with this.
SPM is defined either via the attribute in SRAT SPA entries,
EF_MEMORY_SP or via the EFI memory map.

Whether it is in HMAT or not isn't all that relevant.
Back in the days of the reservation hint (so before yesterday :)
it was relevant obviously but that's no longer true.

So what am I missing?

Thanks,

Jonathan
