rmc: add support for alternative EFI bootloaders
RMC was previously configured to work only with the systemd-boot EFI bootloader. With this commit we can specify alternative bootloaders by setting the RMC_BOOTLOADER variable in local.conf. If RMC_BOOTLOADER is not set systemd-boot will be used by default. Signed-off-by: Todor Minchev <todor.minchev@linux.intel.com> Signed-off-by: California Sullivan <california.l.sullivan@intel.com>
