Hello,

The package description could be improved, to mention what the package
is doing :
Is it executed at boot time (I doubt so), or is it use to configure the
bootload and/or the firmware?

Also, what kind of security does it configures? (define a boot password,
protect the access to the firmware? configure the boot sequence, etc.)

If it configures the firmware, does one needs that tool to revert the
changes, or can it be done from the firmware itself?

Thanks,

Franklin
