Ok, so I like this series - if Matt acks it I can apply it.

How urgent is it? The 'laptop does not boot' aspect worries me - how frequently
are systems hit by this?

The approach you chose looks sufficiently robust and straightforward to me, so it
ought to work fine even for x86/urgent - but we can phase it into efi/core as well
if Matt prefers that.
