I do have a fix for that but this fix is still not tested and not in
BootX. I'll try to find some time to finish sometimes this week. (The fix
is a hack: I patch the MacOS burgundy driver to prevent the shutdown.
Also this works only with versions of the driver that do export their
function names thru the TOC, which may not be the case of future versions).
