With Vanderpool and Pacifica this should be fairly easy. 

The fact that stuff like this is possible (maybe even with SMI) is not
the scary part. The scary part is we might never get control over any
piece of hardware again.

Talking about EFI, has anyone been able to get into the UEFI group as
announced on the LinuxBIOS summit last year?
