Please split this into two patches - one that tweaks the
existing comments and one that adds new entries.

I'm pretty sure this won't work ;)

It's kind of insane that the format for this is, and I quote,

  [...] list of pairs of <loader>:<nvram> paths.
  Both pairs and list items are separated by a colon.

Of course it's too late to change it now, but I couldn't let such
a perfect opportunity to complain about it just pass me by :)
