(I've sent this earlier but didn't add v2 to subject, this is resend only)


This series adds recipes for gummiboot and a class allowing it to be used
as the boot loader for live/hddimg images.
Without changing EFI_PROVIDER, we have the same behaviour for EFI machines.
Using EFI_PROVIDER = "gummiboot" an installed image will use gummiboot instead
of grub-efi as it's boot manager.

I've tested this on FRI2, NUC and minnow (live USB boot and install from USB and boot) 
with  EFI_PROVIDER = "gummiboot" and  KERNEL_FEATURES_append = " cfg/efi-ext"
in local.conf

This is a partial fix for YB#4082.

Changes in V2:
 - split the first patch in two
 - used ${B} instead of ${S} in gummiboot do_deploy
 - change the function names in bootimg/grub-efi instead of using a

I've tested again the changes on top of master.
