2- Added kernel patcher, removes the CPUID check panic in the kernel. Forces _cpuid_set_info to
3 return Penryn / cpuid model 23
4
5- Implemented SPD memory automatic detection and injection,seems to work really great ...
6- Factorized code to prepare a dynamic memory detection algorithm ...
7- Optimized smbios table address search
8- Optimized cursor spinout in textmode if no verbose mode is set
9- Added ram table structures definitions
10- Added getSmbios() a param permitting to select between orig and new smbios entries
11- Changed "Default Partition" behaviour to accept only native system volumes or foreign partitions.

14- improved ACPI file search algo by implementing a cache.
15- Nvidia injection fix
16- pciroot would not always return correct uuid in autodection mode
17- Fixed the hibernation problem in boot2/resume.c
18- Fixed all new booter versions with SystemType would override the facp value even if correct,
19 now keeps the facp value if correct and no override has been done, implemented a best effort algo.
20 for maximizing the chance to get the most correct value before we decide to use a fixed value (1=desktop)
21- Fixed display cosmetics of UUID, now a convert.c file contains all
22 conversions api, to be completed by function that we should reuse.
23
24- Fixed SystemType would be always forced to a value, now optionally changed
25 only if ovveriden
26- Kept SystemID as the only option to change manually the system-id
27 For theses reasons, SystemId from bootConfig and SMUUID from smbiosConfig aer now DEPRECATED.
28
29- Integrated JrCs fadt patch (kept for RC5 the existing DSDT.aml retry algo that disapeared in his patch, should be more discussed for RC6)
30- Added JrCs modified convention name change to coding_standards
31- Now malloc (ex. MALLOC in Asere patch) is renamed malloc(size) and is an alias
32 to safe_malloc(size, file, line) with _FILE_ and _LINE_ prerocessor definitions
33- Added a new 'Rename Partition Feature', now permitting to rename partition
34 like 'System reserved' to a more meaningful name
35- Added SystemID option permitting to change the System UUID to a fixed value.
36- Added the PciRoot autodetection feature imported from pcefi10.5
37- Added automatic "system-id" injection from dmi bios, also compatible
38 with SystemID boot option and former SMUUID from smbios,plist
39- Added "system-type' automatic injection (1=Desktop) plus override possibility
40 with the new system-type option in bootConfig
41- Added SMserial and SMproductname new options for smbios.plist
42- Merged with asere patch, while keeping my fake_efi.c changes, and adding a new
43 stringForKey() API, also changed the DT__XXXX() set of functions
44 to handle const char * values instead of char*.
