Now this is strange - ACPI spec doesn't explicitly say that range type 0
is invalid. Am I looking at the wrong place?

"Table 15-312 Address Range Types12" in ACPI spec 6.

If 0 is really the invalid entry, then e820_print_type() needs updating
too. And then the invalid-entry-add should be a separate patch.
