Once the OS is running, the BIOS is pretty much out of the loop.  It's
used by the OS for a few things - the ones I know of are mostly related
to major state chagnes, such as shutdown and suspend - but as far as I
know has nothing to do with anything that would bear on "killer high
bandwidth ZFS".

And I tend to be wrong more than usual about PC-related things.  I'm
sure someone will be kind enough to correct me if I've got this wrong.
