OK, finally got time to turn the knobs.  This patch should make it
through a buildworld.

I will at some point add functionality to boot1 to actually check the
partition type GUIDs.

That aside, this is ready for testing, and I've been EFI-booting a ZFS
partition from GRUB using this patch for a while now.
