Well... In theory multiboot protocol was designed as arch independet.
However, docs define more precisely stuff for i386 and MIPS (multiboot2
protocol only). As I know we do not care about MIPS. Additionally, so
called muliboot protocol for ARM is completely different thing then
multiboot protocols mentioned above (it is a mixture of EFI native
loader with DT). So, it looks that from our point of view efi_multiboot2()
is x86 only stuff (right now, I am not fortune teller, so, I am not
able to tell what happens in the future ;-))) ).
