Description

Discovered when investigating #15379:

korli (comment 5):

this syslog is weird, 4 different boots with the first part missing.

me (comment 6):

That might be because I'm using EFI and apparently it logs only to serial:

Admittedly my loader was built before that change, but I don't think it was fixed. As per commit message, that commit only allows to see bootloader log from the boot menu, but doesn't hand it's contents over. If I understand correctly, that would happen by copying/assigning data to debug_output, but EFI loader doesn't do that.
