Which means I can ditch the to-be-reviewed v3 patches 5...16 from
my queue?

And then I'm still not really convinced that all this goes in the right
direction. In particular I'm worried about you doing pretty invasive
to early boot code when it's not really clear that all this need to be
touched (and largely re-written). I'd really favor you initially working
towards supporting MB2 without at the same time trying to abstract
things to fit all of MB1, EFI, MB2, and eventually even ARM. This is
to a good part that it's currently rather hard to see whether what
you abstract and how are really the right items and mechanisms.
