fwts: FirmWare Test Suite

 This is a firmware test suite that performs sanity checks on Intel/AMD
 PC firmware. It is intended to identify BIOS and ACPI errors and
 if appropriate it will try to explain the errors and give advice to
 help workaround or fix firmware bugs. It is primarily intended to
 be a Linux-centric firmware troubleshooting tool.

fwts-frontend: Firmware Test Suite frontend interface

 This is a dialog based interface designed to provide an easy to use method
 to execute tests via Firmware Test Suite and is also used as the primary
 interface within Firmware Test Suit live images.

libfwts1: FirmWare Test Suite core support library

 This is the fwts core library. It contains a top level test framework
 and a rich range of firmware specific testing support code for the
 various fwts tests.

libfwtsacpica1: FirmWare Test Suite ACPICA core built for acpiexec functionality

 The firmware test suite requires the ACPICA core engine to be built in
 execution mode (with ACPI_EXEC_APP enabled) to support run time execution
 of ACPI Machine Language (AML) in the ACPI DSDT and SSDTs. This library
 contains this code with a thin fwts specific API to interface with fwts.

libfwtsiasl1: FirmWare Test Suite ACPICA core built for iasl functionality

 The firmware test suite requires the ACPICA core engine to be built in
 compiler mode (with ACPI_ASL_COMPILER enabled) to support assembly and
 disassembly of ACPI Machine Language (AML) in the ACPI DSDT and SSDTs.
 This library contains this code with a thin fwts specific API to
 interface with fwts.
