How does this integrate with the EFI entry point? That's the expected
entry point on most modern x86. What's calling ExitBootServices() in
this flow, and does the secure launch have to occur after it? It'd be
a lot easier if you could still use the firmware's TPM code rather
than carrying yet another copy.
