that new kiwi does not support u-boot (non EFI/Grub2)

I have not ported plain u-boot support to
the next generation kiwi,
of the effort to move all boards to efi boot. u-boot basically works
EFI firmware being capable to load the grub efi module(s).
Yes, but not all boards are supporting EFI with U-Boot. Especially
Arndale because "Samsung's bl1 lies at sector 1, overlapping with the
EFI GPT, so we can not use EFI".
This is not true. For those boards, we can still use EFI, but need to
convert to MBR. This is done in uboot-image-install.in in section
"Convert GPT to MBR if necessary".
The only case I'm aware of where EFI is not a viable option is when we
rely on U-Boot that is delivered with the system, but doesn't have
efi_loader enablement. Apart from moonshot and midway I'm not aware of
any such system still alive.
Is 32-bit Allwinner working with UEFI by now? Last time I tried it still
fell apart and thus needed boot.scr.
