Oops, sent too soon. I meant to annotate the patch with:

Originally-implemented-by: Christian Nilsson <nikize at gmail.com>

This patch is similar to what Christian Nilsson posted last year:

Notable differences:
* the new logic is added to efi_init.c in this patch; it can't run within
  efi_init() because it allocates, but it logically belongs to efi_init
* we're not stripping BOOT_IMAGE= and initrd= as these should not be
  passed to us by EFI boot loaders (unlike Linux kernel loaders)
