 ### x86 UEFI kernel loader  ### x86 UEFI kernel loader
 Building this for x64 UEFI requires the `ms_abi` function attribute introduced in GCC 4.4 or so.  Needs more work and cleanup.
 This project uses Intel UEFI headers and some existing FreeBSD work.  
 Needs more work and cleanup, also toolchain updates.  
 Work has been done using the OVMF BIOS images for Qemu.  Work has been done using the OVMF BIOS images for Qemu.

 ### Conexant PCI DTV driver  
 I have some code for 23880-3 and 887 host interfaces.  
 This type of hardware is hard to find freely available docs for.  
 Tuner/demod drivers from Linux could be ported, but would still be GPLed.  
 Probably better to keep these drivers in userland.  
   
 Should try to coordinate with what FreeBSD is doing: <http://wiki.freebsd.org/HDTV>.

 ### Toshiba ACPI LCD backlight driver  
 Loosly based on [[!template id=man name="vald" section="4"]]. Currently attaches to `TOS1900`/`VALZ`, but doesn't interact with this device.  
 This driver should really attach to `\_SB.PCI0.GFX0.LCD` or  
 `\_SB.PCI0.PEGP.VGA.LCD`, which are the devices that get notified of  
 brightness button pushes, and contain the `_BCL`, `_BCM`, and `_BQC`  
 methods that access the brightness adjustment function.  
 Such an attachment does not appear to be possible (or at the very least, easy)  
 at present.
