For the SIE features I decided to not name them sie_$feat

So we have e.g. siif instead of sie_siif. I primarily did this to have
shorter feature names and the rational was that the short version (siif)
was sufficient to guess the full name and where it belongs to.

e.g. siif == "Shared IPTE-interlock facility" (we sticked to the f in
there, as siif was a commonly used term if I remember correctly). There
is only one shared ipte-interlock facility.

"qci" (or Query Configuration facility) does _not_ indicate to which
part of the system this belongs. zPCI? sclp? ap?

This should be "apqci" or "qapcf". Or "ap_qci". "qci", on its own is not
sufficient in my opinion.
