Sorry for the delay in testing this; I'd meant to take a look at this
but it managed to fall off my radar.

I've just given this a spin atop of 7a5b301e3adb8e05 ("build: Use
AC_HEADER_MAJOR to find device macros"), with a small conflict manually
fixed up (I assume that the NULL check for inter still stands).

Otherwise, this seems to work perfectly for me in my BOOT-free work
environment on an AArch64 UEFI platform:

grub> net_ls_cards

As previously, I don't have a BOOTP server to hand to test with; sorry
for not being able to test that.

It would be great to see this committed!
