The way it looks to me is that preboot_func is the function to be executed  a preboot time, whereas preboot_rest_func is a cleanup function to be called to "restore" things to the pre-preboot_func state. Something like this anyway.. its not yet real clear to me either.

- I don't understand how preboot_func and preboot_rest_func are different. At least, not obvious. Can you elaborate on them?
preboot_rest_func is a function which should undo any action taken by preboot_func. It's used if either loader aborts due to an error or returns (which is possible on some platforms)
