I've added animated GIF bootsplash support to SeaBIOS.


Is this only of interest to me, or should I submit a patch for consideration?

It is my understanding that the patents that were encumbering GIF use in open source have long since expired so there should not be regulatory blockers.

Thank you kindly.
