Just to note first that no RHEL customer has ever reported this bug to

To test this is going to require a spare UEFI-capable physical machine
where I can install Windows 7, and I don't have such a machine.

I could test it using a virt-p2v conversion from a VM, but then I
guess we'd have to apply these patches to qemu before conversion, and
so it wouldn't be clear to me exactly what we were testing.

Anyway I'll keep an eye on this and if I get hardware capable of
testing it, then I'll do so.

virt-p2v converts physical machines to virtual machines.  Boot with a
live CD or over the network (PXE) and turn machines into KVM guests.
