The "problem" presumably is a newer, more picky iasl. The problem
being with SeaBIOS you'd generally be better off asking the SeaBIOS
folks. Looking at 1.12.0 though I see that they've addressed the
issue already, so you should be able to find a respective commit in
their tree.

Wei - I wonder though whether we should backport that change
(despite it changing names in what I'd call a sub-optimal way)
once 4.11.1 is out (it's too late now for the pending release). I
don't know, though, how this would best be done, as we don't
seem to maintain a (set of) patch(es) for that separate tree
