Xen shouldn't need to load any file after multiboot2 entry point. The
needed files would already be in memory with pointers to them passed.
If you insist on being able to load directly from EFI, then IMO the best
way is to have a PE executable with one of sections containing Xen and
code which would load remaining files to memory and call common entry point.
