    Subject[PATCH] Update iBFT to 1.03
    This patch writen by Peter Jones and Mike Christie expands on the
    iBFT firmware driver to support v1.03 of the spec. The spec in question is
    available at:

    Linux kernel has support for the iBFT 1.0 spec and this update to 1.03
    adds three more things:
    - There is now a ACPI table either called 'iBFT' or 'IBFT' that should
    be parsed.
    - If running with UEFI, only look at the ACPI table.
    - If not found within ACPI tables, fall back to the old mechanism of scanning
    memory for the signature.

    It has been tested with gPXE and also a real hardware (Mike, did I get that right?)
