Follow the lead of seabios_info?

In any case you should design things to be extensible in the future,
since even if we think really hard now inevitably something else will
come along. That way you can add exactly what is needed today and add
other stuff when it becomes necessary.

I'm going to review what is here, but I think we should wait until
agreement is reached with the OVMF folks about that side of thing before
committing anything.
