[Buildroot] [PATCH v2 4/6] configs/pc_x86_64_defconfig: build the EDK2 firmware from source

D. Olsson hi at senzilla.io

From: Dick Olsson <hi at senzilla.io>

Prior to this, you had to manually download a pre-built EDK2 flash device
image (OVMF_CODE.fd) in order to boot this configuration with QEMU.
Now, the configuration is building EDK2 from source.
