Make EFI Rom and NVRAM configurable

It would be really nice to have an actual configuration attribute, even just in XML or via VBoxManage, to configure the EFI rom (EfiRom in source:trunk/src/VBox/Devices/EFI/DevEFI.cpp) and potentially NVRAM.

Use case: I would like to try out my developer copy of Mac OS X 10.7 which requires a special NVRAM. I know the operating system is not explicitly supported, but given EFI Rom and NVRAM support I could make it work myself.

I don't understand the tech properly but if I get a chance I might look at implementing the feature myself. Given I have no experience with virtualization development, it would still be better done by someone more knowledgable.
