Or if, as you say, we can determine that it's _our_ bootx64.efi! That's
pretty simple, since we have strings such as "FreeBSD/amd64 EFI loader,
Revision 1.1" in the binary.
We'll also want to embed a better version string to determine that it's
our bootx64.efi _and_ for a version of FreeBSD that we're wanting to update.
