I believe the EFI boot stub is still totally hosed on 32-bit, and
doesn't correctly set up the graphics when running under qemu in either
mode. Any chance of merging those fixes for 3.8 too? I probably should
have marked them for stable, too.

Not to mention the fact that no sane bootloader can *use* the EFI boot
stub until we start indicating which mode it needs to be invoked in...
which could probably *also* go to stable, in fact. It's just a couple of
new flags in the existing loadflags fields, and doesn't really even need
the bootproto version to be bumped.
