Well, the mbi struct could have had a firmware type and firmware context pointer defined or something of the sort. This would also play nice with Multiboot on OF environments, without resorting to ugly hacks like always passing the OF entry in a GPR on entry.

Let me get this straight, the efi platform does not yet support loading a
multiboot kernel?

I'm working with embedded kernels here, not just Linux.


It's not difficult to add multiboot support, but the question is, can
they support efi ? In linux, we can pass the efi system table using
boot parameter, but there is no such thing in multiboot, so the kernel
need to be able to access hardware directly after taking over.
