One interesting feature it has is that it can bundle the bootloader,
kernel, initramfs and kernel command line into a single EFI binary,
which can be handy for E.G. A/B boot and EFI secure boot.

But with that said, if upstream does not make it easy to build it
seperately, then I'm OK with only allowing it if systemd is built.
