*.efi is "iPXE as an EFI application". It generates something which you can
run by typing its name in the EFI shell.
*.efidrv is "iPXE as an EFI driver". It generates something which you can load
using the "load" command from within the EFI shell.
*.efirom is "iPXE as an EFI driver, wrapped up in a ROM image". It generates
something which you can include within a PCI expansion ROM BAR, and which will
then be loaded automatically when the system is started in UEFI mode.
