[PATCH 0/2] EFI chainloader improvement

This series improves the EFI chainloader. I've noticed for a while now that
chainloading would fail when root=memdisk. It didn't really make sense because
I was specifying the image to chainload as device+path, so why would it care
about what my root was. But I noticed that if I changed the root to the device
the image file was located on, then chainloading worked. The second patch
fixes this by removing some previous assumptions that I don't believe are
valid (eg. that LoadImage needs a valid device path).
