Before 202308, OVMF installs ACPI tables which are statically included in the
OVMF binary. That's enough for booting a VM. However, it's not recommended.
Those ACPI tables don't match your vm configuration. As bhyve already
dynamically creates ACPI tables based on the vm configuration, 202308 tries to
pick them up. This message says that OVMF was unable to pick up bhyve's ACPI
tables and falls back to the static ones.

It's a bit strange that OVMF fails to pick up the bhyve ACPI tables. Not sure
why this occurs.
