I see thanks, I ask as I'm currently removing a pnpbios replacing a
paravirt_enabled() check to a more general disable pnpbios x86 platform quirk
option, so far lguest and xen would use it but it would seem to me it was
worthy to ask if if MID and CE4100 subarchs also could have this set as well

It sounds like then at least for Intel MID I can disable pnpbios as well
as a quirk as well. I can introduce that change separately in my series.

What about CE4100 ?
