Description

There is some concern about Windows not liking ASL structured like in https://review.coreboot.org/#/c/13506/ because NVSA is defined "after" the OpRegion that uses it.

Needs testing and potentially a tree-wide solution

Out of curiosity, what does "Not like" mean here? Hang or BSOD?

It gives a BSOD. I don't recall the values. I'll see if I can get that information and update the bug.
