And yet there are the Macs which reportedly cannot stomach this.

And then there's the issue where some boxes cannot boot through the EFI
stub with those patches even without "efi=1:1_map" on the command line.
The issue has something to do with the "cmpb $0, efi_use_11_map" in the
efi_callX stubs.

And then again, other boxes have no problem with it and boot perfectly

So I don't know - it all looks like a weird boot, opt-in option for now.
