I'm all for it ...
Who's with me ??
Last month I was accused of writing mixed-race characters, like myself, for "diversity brownie points." It's taken a while to get my feelings in order about this, but here is my response, and what it means to me to be a mixed-race author.

@damnyouwillis It's where the goth sipders hang out.
@trini Nope, I was writing a tiny special-case chainloader using gnu-efi. I can probably cook up a test case on that easily enough assuming it hasn't heisenbugged itself away, but I'd have to do a fair bit of work to get it onto the tianocore stuff (assuming that's EDKII).
@trini I guess. Do you know offhand where to report such?
@liw I mean, don't get me wrong, it's_still_ better than the Bad Old Days.
Whee. It turns out if you do nested opens/closes of the same FS on different handles some* UEFI implementations corrupt the runtime services, which means when the OS kernel boots and tries to write an EFI variable… «BOOM» one dead kernel. Which _looks_ like the bootloader hanging, but isn't.
* Ok, _this_ UEFI implementation. Sample size 1.

@laura email, I guess. Or DNS.
