The patch provide support for platforms that adopt UEFI as its underlying
firmware. Since on x86/x64 platforms, UEFI is the standard firmware and has
well support from various devices. This extension seems unnecessary for
these platforms.   

On Arm64 servers, plenty of devices(especially for those bootable devices)
cannot be supported in UEFI firmware. In this situation, linux&petitboot
is the wonderful way to address the issue.

Since UEFI is the primary firmware on Arm64 servers, most of the management
related works can be completed in that enviroment. Therefore some similar
functions implemented in petitboot have been removed.
