This data structure is intended to report any kind of platform capability, not
just platform persistence capabilities.
We could add a short symbolic name to the definitions in ACPI that matches
the ones selected for this command line option, if that'll help people
find the right names to use.
I recommend mc rather than mem-ctrl to keep dashes as special.
I'm not sure it's a good idea:
dashes aren't special in qemu, and mc's way too brief.
