Adding EFI support to memtest86+

The popular memory testing tool memtest86+ currently only boots via traditional BIOS. As EFI-only machines will eventually be the norm, a native EFI binary would be great.

The original memtest86 is now maintained by a company that decided to make further development closed source. Recent memtest86 versions do support EFI, but are not universally free to use. Certain features require a paid license. The task of this project would be to create an EFI loader for the now dormant memtest86+ project, so it can directly run on modern EFI machines.

Requirements

(Basic) knowledge of the x86(64) architecture, the ability to work with technical specs, example code, and getting into an existing code base (mostly C and some assembler).
