Ah I see what length you were referring to params->device_path_info_length.
If we will use that then we will get correct checksum for BIOSes that work
according to phoenix spec too, but edd_show_interface() and edd_show_host_bus()
handle only T13 spec so the information they show can be incorrect. I can
change code to check that params->device_path_info_length == 44 in addition
to checking csum. What do you think?
