    kexec can use it because it's in tree.

    But I don't think using it by out of tree stuff is a good idea.

    e.g. assuming we need a new field. How would we extend this?
    There is no version number or anything to detect this.

    For in tree code it can be just updated. But weirdo-EFI-boot loader
    cannot.
