Subject: [PATCH] efinet: handle get_status() on buggy firmware properly

The EFI spec indicates that get_status() should return the address of the buffer
we passed into transmit to indicate the the buffer was transmitted.  However we
have boxes where the firmware returns some arbitrary address instead, which
makes grub think that we've not sent anything.  So since we have the SNP stuff
opened in exclusive mode just assume any non-NULL txbuf means that our transmit
occurred properly.  This makes grub able to do its networking stuff properly on
our broken firmware.  Thanks,
