x86, doc: Add a bootloader ID for OVMF
OVMF (an implementation of UEFI based on TianoCore used in virtual environments) now has the ability to boot Linux natively; this is used for "qemu -kernel" and similar things in a UEFI environment. Accordingly, assign it a bootloader ID. Signed-off-by: H. Peter Anvin <hpa@linux.intel.com> Cc: David Woodhouse <dwmw2@infradead.org>
