ChangeLog: fix note about UEFI supported architectures

We support:

- 32-bit ARM
- 64-bit ARM (AArch64)
- 32-bit x86 (i386)
- 64-bit x86 (x86-64)

Support for other architectures can be added in easy way.

Get newer util-linux (2.27) to support gpt partition manipulation.

We do this to have a new enough sfdisk to work with GPT.
The version of 2.26.2 is not enough due to sfdisk losing uuids
of gpt partitions on recreate (LP: #1474090).

arm/aarch64: put a getty on ttyAMAO.

Allow to login on serial console on arm/aarch64 architectures.
Virtualized ARM/AArch64 machines provide ttyAMA0 serial port. Use it.

bin/build-release: add human output format to logevent messages.

ca-certificates: update to current in mozilla trunk.

bin/mkcabundle: replace cvs with wget to github of mozilla git

mozilla no longer uses cvs. upstream git is on github.
We can just download the file with wget and still use mkcabundle.
TODO is to replace mkcabundle with shell that does same thing,
and updates the header correctly.

Add support for UEFI booting on AArch64 and x86-64 architectures.

Grub2-efi binaries are pulled from Ubuntu and used to build EFI grub

Disk images are switched to GPT scheme. Part1 is rootfs (from part.img
as it was), part15 is EFI System Partition with EFI grub in place
(on aarch64 and x86-64 only).

Also enabled ARM disk images to be part of release.

Boot tested:

- aarch64/uefi - grub
- aarch64/uefi - direct kernel
- arm - direct kernel
- i686/bios
- x86-64/bios
- x86-64/uefi

All those images booted fine. Not tested PPC ones yet.

white space and consistency cleanup on bin/

All programs in bin/ have 4 space indent and consistent 'vi:' settings
set at bottom of file.
   # vi: tabstop=4 expandtab

For consistency and simplicity, all programs in bin/ are bash as opposed
to mixed bash or sh.
