AMD AGESA firmware concern?

AGESA is the set of binaries used by most AMD systems. Similar, in concept, to Intel’s FSP.

3mdeb points out that the AGESA docs seem to indicate that unbalanced allocation/free of some AGESA resources could have a negative system impact:

The creation and removal of the structure storage depends upon the host environment calling procedure using the AmdCreateStruct and AmdReleaseStruct procedures. Failure to release a structure can cause undesired outcomes.
