I agree.

I'd also like to point out another frequent pitfall in this patch:

While gBS->InstallProtocolInterface() takes a *pointer* to a handle
(because it can *create* a handle, if the handle is NULL on input, and
the first protocol interface is installed on it),
gBS->UninstallProtocolInterface() takes the handle *itself*. If the last
protocol interface is uninstalled from the handle, then the handle is
destroyed, but gBS->UninstallProtocolInterface() does not attempt to
NULL the handle itself. So, here you should pass "gImageHandle", not
"&gImageHandle".

There's also a bit of whitespace mangling here that's not compatible
with either multiline function call style that we like in edk2, but
perhaps edk2-platforms treats that more laxly.

Thanks
Laszlo
