The FirmWare Test Suite (fwts) is a tool to do automatic testing of a PC's
firmware. There can be a lot of subtle or vexing Linux Kernel/firmware issues
caused when firmware is buggy, so it's useful to have a tool that can
automatically check for common BIOS and ACPI errors. Where possible the tool
will give some form of advice on how to fix issues or workaround firmware
