Description

This optional PPI is installed by the platform PEIM to designate that a recovery boot is in progress. Its purpose is to allow certain PEIMs that wish to be dispatched only during a recovery boot to include this PPI in their dependency expression (depex). Including this PPI in the depex allows the PEI Dispatcher to skip recovery-specific PEIMs during normal restarts and thus save on boot time.

This PEIM has no associated PPI and is used only to designate the system state as being "in a crisis recovery dispatch."
