KVM virt on aarch64 and x86 can support EFI via AVMF / OVMF firmware
built from the edk2 project from a technical POV.
The first challenge will be that many mgmt tools still default to
using legacy BIOS when deploying guest OS. We've been trying to
make it easier for mgmt apps to "do the right thing" by having
libosinfo record metadata about whether each guest OS supports
legacy BIOS, EFI or both. ie we want the mgmt apps to just pick
EFI if they see the OS doesn't support legacy BIOS, instead of
requiring users to manually tell them to use EFI.
So I can't say I'm thrilled about a future that depends on
virt, but I'm resigned to the fact this is the direction the world
is taking. So we're not likely to have any choice and will have to
work to mitigate any downsides it brings.
Can we also default to Q35 and forget that i440fx existed?
Do all the pain in one step.
