    EC2: Default to "uefi-preferred" boot mode

    In EC2, UEFI boots faster than BIOS, but not all amd64 instance types
    support UEFI.  AMIs need to have their boot mode designated, which
    created a dilemma: Faster boots, or wider compatibility?

    The recently added "uefi-preferred" option solves this: AMIs can be
    marked to use UEFI where it's available, but fall back to BIOS on
    instance types which do not support UEFI.

    This uses bsdec2-image-upload 1.4.6, which recently landed in the
    ports tree.
