In this patch, you're just refactoring to a new tests/acpi-utils.h, so
I'd normally suggest adding it to the blurb that owns
tests/bios-tables-test.c - but as a pre-existing problem, that also has
no listed maintainer.  we're trying to ensure that all new added files
have something listed in MAINTAINERS, even if it is in a misc section
that only emails the list, although it's harder to say what maintainer
to use for existing files that you are merely touching, and failure to
list a maintainer is not (yet) a hard failure (although there have been
patches proposed to scripts/checkpatch.pl to tighten the rules).

A new section for vmgenid might not be a bad idea, especially it if
covers more files than just the one addition I noticed in this patch.
