I just found a story in the Slashdot queue about a new Intel project

firmware to export static tables to the operating system (OS)" and
looks to be a lightweight replacement for ACPI.

I haven't found any mention of SFI on either Wikipedia or on the
coreboot wiki. Does anyone have further information on the project?
