Well, the use case is similar: Flash only parts of Intel
firmware. The structure is very different, though, in its
nature. It seems that things can shift and sizes change
when you prep a firmware update, for instance. So, IFD
partitioning is reliable and read-only. IFWI partitioning
is... well, not very nice, unless you have full control
over all firmware parts.
