32 bit UEFI

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

It seems that the number of pure 32 bit UEFI systems is growing and so
we can't continue to ignore them. The reason that we don't support
UEFI on 32 bit images now is that some older systems have broken
biosen that blow up when the el torito boot catalog contains multiple
entries, and we don't want to have to maintain and test two separate
images.

What if we transition the main 32 bit image to UEFI support, and to
support those few people that still have very aged systems that don't
deal with it, we could have a non UEFI flavor of only the netinst
image? That should have minimal overhead to maintain.
