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.


(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).
