Well the possibility to load any kernel will still exist i.e. making it
possible to boot
the system with another kernel. Since this is a laptop I want to make it
unusable in case
it gets stolen for example.

Is it possible to patch out everything else and just leave the chainloader?

Yes the kernel and the initrd will need to be on the EFI partition.

It looks like gummiboot is just a chainloader so, since I've installed
my own keys, no need of Shim.

Best regards,

p.s. Yeap all gentoo users are control freaks :)
