Hi all,

I have continued looking onto this, and it seems I have to use 
-acpitable command with an image of the original host SLIC table. But a 
fix in QEMU is also needed:

Is this upstream patch merged in the future QEMU 2.6?

I just tested and the ACPI table results show me that in current QEMU 
(pve-qemu-kvm: 2.5-14) it is not, as I get a DELL entry in SLIC table, 
but not in FACP and RSDT tables...

Thanks a lot
