The one who is (for normal installation) responsible for writing install.inf is
not YaST, but Linuxrc. YaST only reads data from this file.

However, for the live installer use-case, install.inf does not exist at all and
therefore you cannot rely in it (just brought the live installer up).

This means that we have basically two options:
- introduce something that will take care of writing install.inf for the live
CD
- make partitioner (and possibly also bootloader) detect EFI a different way
(Bootloader seems to check presence of /sys/firmware/efi directory)

Thomas, I'm sorry I cannot help more now...
