Details

Summary

As part of generating hybrid ISO images we need to find out where the EFI ESP is located in the El Torito boot catalog. This utility can emit that information either in human-readable text or as a string that can be passed to eval in a shell script for further use there.

Test Plan

Run it against some El Torito ISO images and see what it says.
