Agree, but coreboot use old commit from edk2. Is it fine to push vUDK2018?

I believe coreboot should stick to edk2 releases not to random commits
in the tree.

Can anyone tell what tests were made against tianocore payload? There
are patches in payload/external/tianocore/patches and I'm not sure
against what hardware those should be validated.
