Is there any issues remaining that prevents users from using the KGPE-D16 daily with GNU Boot?

If it's obvious that some USB ports don't work maybe we could document that at least to make sure users don't break their mainboard trying to fix it.

More tests by DiffieHellman :

> 11 sept. 2023 04:07:31 - DiffieHellman: Okay, tested GNUboot on my 3rd KGPE-D16 and it works great and RAMinit on 128GB RAM seems faster. The annoying bug where I have to hold enter on boot lest grub crashes seems to be fixed.
> 11 sept. 2023 04:10:56 - DiffieHellman: It seems that there are 2 kinds of Chinese D16 boards: Less nice ones with a KVM soldered on with 1 CR2032 battery slot (despite there being pads for 2) and nicer ones with a KVM socket and 2 CR2032 battery slots. The nicer ones seems to use a better usb chipset than the less nice, but I'd have to actually look at the board.

seabios_grubfirst_kgpe-d16-rdimm_16mb_libgfxinit_txtmode_usqwerty has been tested by DiffieHellman :

> seabios_grubfirst_kgpe-d16-rdimm_16mb_libgfxinit_txtmode_usqwerty works :3 Usb is still somewhat broken, as if I leave my keyboard/mouse plugged in during boot I get: Symbol `grub_machine_fini` not found Aborted, plus usb keyboard inputs are very slow, but ehh.
