* BITS: Testing BIOS/platform issues with Python in a bootloader

The kernel often has to cope with misconfiguration and bugs in BIOS and ACPI, working around them when possible and reporting them otherwise. These bugs rarely managed to get fixed upstream, and nothing prevents them from recurring on new systems with new BIOSes. Help us change that, and hear about BITS, our system for testing BIOS using Python and ACPICA embedded in GRUB. (slides)
