I like the idea of replacing a 16-bit binary module with 32-bit
source code. But I think the use of EFI GOP is still quite limited.
All of the UEFI BIOS I have seen from AMI, Insyde, and Phoenix still
use CSM to execute the old legacy 16-bit video option rom. The only
EFI BIOS I know of that executes video code natively is Apple. Native
video code execution probably contributes to Apple's fast boot time.
The problem for us is getting the needed source code from the video
