It's a secret! ;-)

It's a secret :)

Another question, maybe OT for this list, it looks like the acpi_describe functionality might append my description into the ACPI table into memory, but when my windows driver uses AuxKlibEnumerateSystemFirmwareTables('ACPI', ...), my new table isn't there (just the expected ACPI tables). Am I right about what I think this does? I can see that iPXE definitely calls my _describe function.

I can fall back to just scanning low memory for my signature, but that doesn’t seem nearly as elegant.
