Fixes & Enhancements

Fixes:
* Added support for Signed BIOS Update in accordance with the NIST SP800-147 guidelines.
Note 1: Once the Signed BIOS Update is enabled in the BIOS setup after flashing to BIOS version 2.2.3, flashing back to older versions will be blocked. This is an optional feature and is not automatically enabled by flashing the BIOS.
Note 2: In order to flash to BIOS version 2.2.3 or newer using USC, you must first flash to BIOS version 2.1.2, if you are on an older version of BIOS. Other BIOS update methods do not have this prerequisite.
* Updated Intel Xeon Processor E3-1200 Series D2 stepping microcode (Patch ID=0x28).
* Updated Intel Xeon Processor E3-1200 V2 Series E1 stepping microcode (Patch ID=0x15).
* Enhanced Compatibility Support Module (UEFI CSM).
* Enhanced Boot Manager (BDS-UEFI Boot Device Selection) to version 0.32.
* Fixed incorrect SMBIOS Type17 Memory Capability reporting.
