55- Added new drop acpi table mechanism, now it's really able to drop any tables
56- 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)
57- Fixed the HelloWorld module (broken since i have increased module hook arguments number)
59- "-F" now mean do not use prelinked kernel

102- Increased boot2's maximum size from 383.5k to 447.5k.
103 Updated stage 1 loaders for handling the new size limit.
104- Added alternate format for setting the default partition. The user can specify the selected

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