52 PM type set by the cpu features
53- Added new drop acpi table mechanism, now it's really able to drop any tables
54- BootHelp is not anymore embed by default in the bootloader core, if you need the help at boot time, just install your BootHelp.txt in /Extra/ (for now GUI module still embed it)
55- Fixed the HelloWorld module (broken since i have increased module hook arguments number)
57- "-F" now mean do not use prelinked kernel

100- Increased boot2's maximum size from 383.5k to 447.5k.
101 Updated stage 1 loaders for handling the new size limit.
102- Added alternate format for setting the default partition. The user can specify the selected
103 volume UUID for the "Default Partition" key.

115- pciroot would not always return correct uuid in autodection mode
116- Fixed the hibernation problem in boot2/resume.c
117- Fixed all new booter versions with SystemType would override the facp value even if correct,
118 now keeps the facp value if correct and no override has been done, implemented a best effort algo.
119 for maximizing the chance to get the most correct value before we decide to use a fixed value (1=desktop)
120- Fixed display cosmetics of UUID, now a convert.c file contains all
121 conversions api, to be completed by function that we should reuse.
123- Fixed SystemType would be always forced to a value, now optionally changed
124 only if ovveriden
125- Kept SystemID as the only option to change manually the system-id
126 For theses reasons, SystemId from bootConfig and SMUUID from smbiosConfig aer now DEPRECATED.
128- Integrated JrCs fadt patch (kept for RC5 the existing DSDT.aml retry algo that disapeared in his patch, should be more discussed for RC6)
129- Added JrCs modified convention name change to coding_standards
130- Now malloc (ex. MALLOC in Asere patch) is renamed malloc(size) and is an alias
131 to safe_malloc(size, file, line) with _FILE_ and _LINE_ prerocessor definitions
132- Added a new 'Rename Partition Feature', now permitting to rename partition
133 like 'System reserved' to a more meaningful name
134- Added SystemID option permitting to change the System UUID to a fixed value.
135- Added the PciRoot autodetection feature imported from pcefi10.5
136- Added automatic "system-id" injection from dmi bios, also compatible
137 with SystemID boot option and former SMUUID from smbios,plist
138- Added "system-type' automatic injection (1=Desktop) plus override possibility
139 with the new system-type option in bootConfig
140- Added SMserial and SMproductname new options for smbios.plist
141- Merged with asere patch, while keeping my fake_efi.c changes, and adding a new
142 stringForKey() API, also changed the DT__XXXX() set of functions
143 to handle const char * values instead of char*.
