Subject: Re: [PATCH v4 10/18] ACPI / table: Print GIC information when MADT

If you do this for prettiness, having an example output in the commit
message would be a nice touch.

The question is why it's needed though? Do we really need all this verbose
information in dmesg when it could be found out in other ways instead?

x86 is notoriously verbose in some of these aspects, I'm not sure it's
something we need to mimic here?
