I am currently working on adding support for LEDE build system to
generate UEFI bootable images.
What I've done in this WIP:
[*] Adding grub2-efi-amd64 and grub2-efi-ia32 packages.
[*] Adding new targets under x86: 64-efi and efi, which can be selected
via build's menuconfig.
[*] Modifying config/Config-images.in to select correct grub-efi
package for x86_64_efi and x86_efi targets.
[*] Modifying target/linux/x86/images/Makefile to create UEFI bootable
[*] UEFI bootable ext4 image
What doesn't work:
[ ] UEFI bootable squashfs image
[ ] GPT disk image (ptgen currently doesn't support gpt partitions)
Not yet tested
[ ] RAMDISK image
[ ] ISO image
Bugs I encountered:
- Flickering screen during GRUB menu selection display (under EDK II
firmware v 2.60)

Please check the tree and give me review so that it's eligible for
inclusion on LEDE upstream.
