Yes, tools/firmware/hvmloader/acpi/dsdt.asl. The right way to do this will
be to gate it on a flag set up in memory by hvmloader (we already do this
e.g., for com1 and com2 -- see construct_bios_info_table() in build.c in the
same directory). That might be a bit tricky as it probably needs a bit of
ASL hacking, which has a little learning curve. I can take a look maybe next
