Windows have *.INI files so that they can ignore broken BIOS.  Or in
other way round - due to this, the hardware vendors never ship the
correct BIOS!

I have patches to make some stuff dynamically re-configurable,
e.g. overriding the default pin-config or additional verbs together
with some hints to the parser, which can be set up via udev etc.

You can see it on my git tree
