Not necessarily.  If all the device uses can be fixed with a fake
ACPI table, and if the remaining cases all fall into just a couple
of the six other init levels, then it might be sufficent to just make
sn_init functions for the two levels that are used.

You may need this as a backup plan anyway, the "tuples in the init
table" only has a limited chance of success of getting accepted into
mainline.  Depends on how pretty it comes out, and whether anyone
other than ia64 will actually use it.
