First the Linux kernel running under EFI has to actually boot (with Xen
hypervisor).  It doesn't do that yet and the upstream kernel would
need patches for that.


Here were some patches (which were mostly Jan Beulich's originally)
http://comments.gmane.org/gmane.linux.acpi.devel/51940
and Matthew wanted to push those hooks in the lower layer (since the
EFI is shared across x86 and ia64). But before that could be completed
the submitter vanished so... Are you up for picking this up?
