Heh. Actually it doesn't need to be a fork. It's modular, and the FAT
driver is just a single module. Which is actually included in *binary*
form in the EDK2 repository, I believe, and its source code is

We could happily make a GPL¹ or LGPL implementation of a FAT module and
build our OVMF with that instead, and we wouldn't need to fork OVMF at


¹ If it's GPL, of course, then we mustn't include any *other* binary
blobs in our OVMF build. But the whole point in this conversation is
that we don't *want* to do that. So that's fine.
