Agreed, it's a less than ideal compromise :(
Spelling it out now seems too long as it has to be repeated a lot in a given
I think cfmw is too vague for a QEMU parameter and for CXL only the ACPI
(hence the s) has defined acronym of CFMWS. The underlying actual routing
is impdef so never given an acronym (there is only one direct reference to the
window itself in the CXL spec and that's spelled out as "fixed-memory window").
