Damn. Support for smbiod 3.0 fall completely through the cracks:
The qemu-side changes have long been merged (except for flipping the default to 3.0), but I didn't pay attention so the seabios patches didn't got merged :(
I'd live to have them included in the new release, I suspect that implies we have to extend the freeze and release in early december?
Yeah - if we're going to make a change now, I think we should wait a few weeks before tagging a release.
It's been a while since I've looked at the smbios 3 patches - are there any changes since then?
Latest version is at: https://gitlab.com/ehabkost/seabios/-/commits/work/smbios-3.0/
Rebased, but no functional changes in the smbios updates.
I took another look at those patches and they look fine to me.
I'm not sure what you'd prefer to do with the SeaBIOS release though. We have a couple of high-level options:
1. Release v1.15.0 this week without these changes (tag 64f37cc5).
2. Commit the smbios 3 changes (and pcie-pci-bridge changes) and release v1.15.0 in early January.
I suppose we could commit the changes and try to make a release in December, but that seems like it would dilute the meaning of a "release".
What are your thoughts?
