Not being a specialist here at all, so, sorry if it's a lame question,

why would the whole calibration routine be only ran once anyway?
Maybe a re-run (or a few) would eventually miss the SMI and
the warp be gone? (and could be detected and added as a quirk/
workaround for buggy bios(es)/hw too maybe?)

(example from real life: guitar tuners [people that is] can go over
the entire tuning procedure a few times before achieving perfection,
as sometimes tuning one string affects all the others)
