AFAICT this is changing the contents of a firmware table which is
exposed to the guest, so the changelog should come complete with a
pointer to the relevant spec and a discussion as to why this is ok to
omit from the tables.

I think you've also made the type 22 malformed, but you should check the
spec to see.
