Ok, I can basically make everything else work, even chainloading OS X,
but it just don't boot Linux. Kernel and initrd loads properly, but it
hangs when boot. I start to wonder if this is the kernel's fault. I
apply the patches from, not working either. And elilo
also fails to load linux.

same here, initrd loading looks to be working properly now with your patch, and Linux seems to get equally stuck even when I boot a kernel that doesn't need/have an initrd (despite all with CONFIG_EFI=y, and other _EFI_ things on too; in particular, it wasn't on the network when I had ethernet cable plugged in, and it normally would be, so that's my evidence that it definitely didn't boot). (though I didn't try chainloading OSX). So it seems your patches improve matters; but we're not in paradise yet :-), and may not be for a while, so the patches should probably go into grub and the symptoms documented?
