That's the "header type" field on the GEM shim.

I'd rather not have this fixed by the device-tree check, for
various reasons; note that this issue probably is related to the
"config space not readable while GEM is in sleep mode" problem
on older Macs.  Is the GEM powered on during boot, on these boxes?
