Ok. I had not redundancy in mind; rather security.  But redundancy is
very important too.  If I may make a suggestion, a tutorial on how to
set up a libreboot + GNU/Linux server (even a basic one) would be most
useful.  I have one, but I must get rid of it since it is not able to
run libreboot: I have plans to do this, but I did not yet figure out
how you achieved to set one up.

Quite so.

I think so: at least, I have changed mine without having to
reconfigure anything else.
