Note that in my mail, I was referring to proprietary memtest86. I
haven't tried memtest86+ on my current system since it's clearly

While I consider the effort to keep Memtest86+ working in Fedora
heroic, and I've never had it fail to detect bad memory for me, I feel
like shipping a tool that spuriously fails on modern hardware when
attempting to detect spurious hardware failures is more of a
negative than a positive. While it seems fixed in Rawhide, with a dead
upstream I'm sure it's just a matter of time until it happens again
(likely when the necessary GCC compat package gets dropped).
Note: memtest86+ actually had an upstream release recently after a
*very* long hiatus, so I guess it's no longer dead. But I agree
memtest86+ should be dropped, since it's incompatible with UEFI and
surely not what we want people to try using.
