  * arm64-efi/netboot: Improvements to mini.iso generation:
    - Add an EFI System Partition to fix booting from USB stick on
      same platforms LP: #1692876.
    - Remove no-op arguments -boot-load-size and -boot-info-table.
    - Use simpler "-e" instead of "--efi-boot" since we only have 1
      el torito image.
    - Add -partition_offset 16 so that the output of commands like
      'isosize' is correct.
  * netboot/arm64: Include nic-firmware. LP: #1743638.

  * Bump FLOPPY_SIZE on amd64, i386, and powerpc for kernel growth.

Bug description:
  [Impact]
  Network installs over a QLogic QED 25/40/100Gb Ethernet NIC will not work.

  [Test Case]
  Attempt to use the netinst installer to install a system over this NIC.

  [Regression Risk]
  The fix is just add to add additional kernel modules and firmware to the 
installer to support this NIC. The biggest risk I see there is that it 
increases the size of the installer, which could potentially grow to bit for 
some smaller systems.
