I have two concerns before investing time in this:

  - I heard CoreBoot was deprecating ELF for size reasons.

  - On an earlier discussion (about boot issues on Apple hardware), Pavel
    proposed switching util/elf/grub-mkimage.c to use libbfd.  This would
    solve a few problems automaticaly, including this one.
