If the affect of this is only to install Xen (and some symlinks)
into /usr/lib64/efi and optionally into the ESP then:
        Acked-by: Ian Campbell <ian.campbell@xxxxxxxxxx>
What I don't want is for an extra xen.efi to show up in the
regular /boot directory. I think this patch doesn't do that though.

Jan, slight aside: what do you think about setting EFI_VENDOR to e.g.
XenProject by default (i.e. installing into the ESP by default)?
