Yeah, probably so. We will probably never even use them anyway (just as we don't
use edd_packet_v3 even though we could probably make use of it to avoid some
bounce buffering in the loader).
Other than these issues the patch looks great!
Perhaps later we could do detailed definitions for things like interface paths for
various cases, etc.
I doubt we will ever use them.
In theory we could pass that information from loader to kernel, so that in a
booted system we could try to build a mapping between kernel disks and bios disks,
with the boot disk potentially being of the most interest.
