An overview will be presented of recent work in the Linux/EFI
subsystem and associated projects (u-boot, Tianocore, systemd), with a
focus on generic support for the various new architectures that have
adopted EFI as a supported boot flow. This includes UEFI secure boot
and/or measured boot on non-Tianocore based EFI implementations,
generic decompressor support in Linux and early handling of RNG seeds
provided by the bootloader.

Note that topics related to confidential computing (TDX, SEV) will not
be covered here: there are numerous other venues at LPC and the KVM
Forum that already cover this in more detail.
