Re: Booting BSD on a libreboot system - documentation needed
Although, I'm ill-equipped to work on this, I am also curious about BSD
support for libreboot. What is blocking EFI support?

Very cool. I for one will check it out.
If I'm not mistaken, NetBSD's bootloader doesn't yet support EFI. It
sounds like it's somewhat less jiggery-pokery than an MBR bootloader. Plus
it just uses a regular FAT32 file system. I'm sure there are difficulties
I'm not aware of, but I'm hoping for good things, soon.
