So far the systems we have, with DDR4 NvDIMM(s) (Actual chips arriving soon)
still have BIOS (On by default). The BIOS was yelled "Wolfe" for so long NOW ;-)
Again these are working system in the field, who will switch them all to UEFI?

How will the UEFI present them to the system? can you point me to the relevant
code? (Or did you mean BIOS but with a different communication path than e820?)
