Some problems found with this series:

- bisectability breaks in 3/9:

drivers/built-in.o: In function `efi_driver_register':
/home/sha/dude/barebox/barebox-test/include/efi/efi-device.h:38: undefined reference to `efi_bus'
fs/built-in.o: In function `efi_driver_register':
/home/sha/dude/barebox/barebox-test/include/efi/efi-device.h:38: undefined reference to `efi_bus'
arch/efi/efi/built-in.o: In function `efi_execute_image':
/home/sha/dude/barebox/barebox-test/arch/efi/efi/efi-image.c:162: undefined reference to `efi_connect_all'
/home/sha/dude/barebox/barebox-test/arch/efi/efi/efi-image.c:163: undefined reference to `efi_register_devices'
Makefile:756: recipe for target 'barebox' failed
make: *** [barebox] Error 1

- The end result won't compile:

arch/x86/Makefile:88: *** recipe commences before first target.  Stop.

With this one fixed we get:

In file included from common/efi/env-efi.bbenv.S:1:0:
include/asm-generic/barebox.lds.h:12:30: fatal error: mach/barebox.lds.h: No such file or directory
 #include <mach/barebox.lds.h>

I think you can squash most of the patches together, maybe leaving 6/9
and 9/9 as separate patches. The rest is probably hard to keep separated
while maintaining bisectability
