- Started to deprecate former system id uuid options: now encouraging to use SMsystemid because it follows smbios options naming convention, is not as vague as SMUUID, and should belong to smbios config, not bootConfig.
For theses reasons, SystemId from bootConfig and SMUUID from smbiosConfig aer now DEPRECATED.
- Integrated JrCs fadt patch (kept for RC5 the existing DSDT.aml retry algo that disapeared in his patch, should be more discussed for RC6)
- Added JrCs modified convention name change to coding_standards
- Now malloc (ex. MALLOC in Asere patch) is renamed malloc(size) and is an alias
