[PATCH v3 0/5] Support Secure Boot for multiboot2 Xen

This is version 3 for a patch set sent out to the ML in 2018 [1] to
support UEFI Secure Boot for Xen on multiboot2 platforms.

A new binary, xen.mb.efi, is built.  It contains the mb2 header as well
as a hand-crafted PE/COFF header.  The dom0 kernel is verified using the
shim lock protocol.

I followed with v2 feedback and attempted to convert the PE/COFF header
into C instead of ASM.  Unfortunately, this was only possible for the
first part (Legacy) of the PE/COFF header.  The other parts required
addresses only available at link time (such as __2M_rwdata_end,
__pe_SizeOfImage, efi_mb_start address, etc...), which effectively ruled
out C.

The biggest difference between v2 and v3 is that in v3 we do not attempt
to merge xen.mb.efi and xen.efi into a single binary.  Instead, this
will be left to a future patch set, unless requested otherwise.

Changes in v3:

- add requested comment clarification
- remove unnecessary fake data from PE/COFF head (like linker versions)
- macro-ize and refactor Makefile according to Jan's feedback
- break PE/COFF header into its own file
- shrink the PE/COFF to start 0x40 instead of 0x80 (my tests showed
  this function with no problem, on a live nested vm or using
- support SOURCE_EPOCH for posix time
- removed `date` invocation that would break on FreeBSD
- style changes
- And obviously, ported to current HEAD
