    I presume that if someone wanted to have the progressbar, they'd just need to write on that worked on the EFI console rather than using the BIOS calls, is that right?
    1. yep, there is an catch - with kernel up and running and early boot, we only have frame buffer console for EFI (if lucky), so it would mean some nice work on plain framebuffer. Not woo hard, but still fun;)
