No but maybe we could. Most boards have some GPIO/LED/reset switch
button. Do all machines have a NUMA memory device? Do all machines
have a dtb? Do all machines use NVDIMM devices? I think we have
more machines using GPIOs than machine using NVDIMM. Anyway I don't
mind, I was just trying to figure where this container belong on QOM.
