I am slowly starting work on EFI stuff in Xen and dom0 with upstream Linux 
I am preparing my new platform for this now. At first I am going to figure out 
works and what does not work. Additionally, I am going to work on GRUB2 to 
load Xen and other needed stuff. I think that final goal is to have Xen 
working in all possible EFI configs.

You could assign me to this task.
