Interesting. I never had an ISO for Itanium.
Looks very similar to the Debian arm64 ISOs. Much neater MBR partition
table than i386 and amd64 ISOs.

I still see room for improvements (for arm64 too):

- Use xorrisofs option -partition_offset 16 to get the full image size
  including the appended partition from commands like /sbin/isosize.

- Use argument
  to option -e, in order to point El Torito to the appended partition.
  The image file ./CD1/boot/grub/efi.img may then be moved out of ./CD1
  so that it does not eat room in the ISO filesystem.

Where to motivate and discuss these ?

Have a nice day :)
