Trusting the firmware is never a good decision but we've established on
IRC that *this* firmware is in OVMF and is going to be part of the guest
measurement so if there's trouble we can always fix it, as opposed to
the actual firmware in the chip.

Please add some blurb above this function about it so that it is clear
what kind of EFI firmware it is about here.
