        Hadn't meant quietly per se, more along the lines of under-the-radar but not exactly... A short alternative to "I or my scripts didn't notice this patch series until now, nor did any other 'media' spot this patch series". But in any case, I just removed 'quietly' to avoid confusion.

              I guess it's better to have than not to have. The price for admission for locked down corp env's.

                I read it like this: there is a government/corporation driven Trojan horse build-in in your computer and it can and will be weaponized against you.

                and they call it "Trusted" only because it can be trusted by government and corporations to be a weapon against you and not only a weapon also a very effective weapon against you.

                  Even just Coreboot support would be better than nothing. They don't release their AGESA blob for Ryzen so there is really no other option than vendor UEFI.

                    Companies that need this and can pay AMD to get signed with their key.

                    It's an application, so it will be installed by the user or distro maintainer
