efinet: Defer exclusively opening the network handles

Authored by scottph on Jun 14 2019, 8:53 PM.



Don't commit to exclusive access to the network device handle by
efinet until the loader has decided to load something through the
network. This allows for the possibility of other users of the
network device.

Test Plan

Do UEFI PXE, see that it continues to work.
