OOI, what does Debian install for x86 HVM guest? Is there any ticket
tracking this issue?

On x86, it installes grub.  (grub2, x86, PC, to be precise.)

I have just realized that on x86 you will always have a firmware in the guest. On Arm we commonly boot the kernel directly.

So maybe we are closer to PV here. Do you also install GRUB in that case?

Note that we do support EDK2 at least on Arm64. It would be nice to get some tests for it in Osstest in the future.

I'm not aware of any ticket or bug about this.

It might be worth creating one then.
