[PATCH 0/2] arm64: Support HP Envy X2

I got a new toy this week: An HP Envy X2 system. This is one of those shiny
new Qualcomm Snapdragon based Windows tablet/notebook hybrid things.

While running Windows on those is actually not a terribly bad experience now
that WSL is out, I would like to see Linux run on those as well in the future.

Unfortunately as far as I'm aware so far nobody was able to run self built
binaries on the built-in UEFI version.

Turns out, it's a problem with aligning the start of the header to 4k. Once
we do that, binaries can be loaded just fine and run.

So to maintain compatibility with that device, this patch set just bumps the
header alignment to 4K always on arm64-efi. This shouldn't hurt too much for
not affected targets and allows us to have a single grub binary that can then
chain load Linux properly.
