Hi all,
based on what was revealed during F19 testing, Basic Video Driver testcase [1]
should be adjusted to reflect preferred way how to handle graphic fallback on
UEFI systems.

>From what I read [2, 3], it seems that UEFI systems don't support VESA graphic
mode. I must admit that I don't fully understand what's the state of UEFI
graphic protocols (there is GOP and UGA protocols, but I don't know whether
Linux supports them), so if there is anyone who knows how graphic fallback
should be handled on UEFI systems, please share your knowledge with us.
