We're not sure. UEFI is so complex, and there are so many vendors writing
bad code for it, that at least part of this work involves "figure out what
a mess the ODM made of UEFI and work around it."

Trammell had a very interesting post just today, concerning how Boot Device
Selection does all sort of things unrelated to Boot Device Selection -- on
an Intel board, of course.

The purpose of the group: "Welcome to the LinuxBoot mailing list, wherein
we discuss using a Linux kernel as the ramstage (coreboot) or
DxeCore/BdsExe/UEFISHell replacement."
