Subject: [PULL 03/17] acpi: cpuhp: spec: clarify 'CPU selector' register usage and endianness
Date: Wed, 22 Jan 2020 00:51:54 -0500

From: Igor Mammedov <address@hidden>

* Move reserved registers to the top of the section, so reader would be
  aware of effects when reading registers description.
* State registers endianness explicitly at the beginning of the section
* Describe registers behavior in case of 'CPU selector' register contains
  value that doesn't point to a possible CPU.
