I have not, as I was unaware this was possible.  How/Where do I set that?
 I assume it's either a kernel option or something I put in %pre (is it a
literal in %per?)... ?  I found the method that checks that value but am
not currently familiar enough with the code involved to trace it back.

I've read a few things to that affect but we're currently not using EFI.
 I'm sure most (if not all) of our hardware is EFI capable but I don't know
enough about it right now and don't have the cycles to recertify all of our
processes again.  I will keep it in mind for the future though.
