That screenshot mentions DUET which is the tianocore.org UEFI emulator
that boots on top of a legacy BIOS.  But, it's unclear if it was just
DUET, or something based modified specifically for coreboot based on

I will not dispute that DUET might be a potential solution to achieve
UEFI compatibility for QEMU.  (I'm not sure, but I think DUET may not
be able to boot UEFI OS's at this time.)  However, we thought a
project such as OVMF was a more direct approach to achieve UEFI
compatibility for QEMU.

I see that there was a gnufi project that is mentioned on
http://www.coreboot.org/Payloads, but it looks like this
project may be stalled.  ??
