I cannot relicense code written by others. However, I implemented a
simple payload mechanism in VGABIOS, that means it will hook up binary
32bit size of payload
32bit entry point
The entry point function has wanted function number in ax. Current
Every call is done for each payload present.
If you care about adding proprietary code (or why would you want it MIT
licensed instead LGPL), this would solve your problem.
Better if I ask: why is it preferred to have the bios MIT/BSD licensed?
