The Documentation for VirtualBox essentially says UEFI is for MacOS
and not general purpose and that they don't implement the UEFI variable
storage.  Their workaround is to use a startup.nsh script to boot.
Doing that does work just fine.

So at least for now they don't think it's a bug.  It is working as
designed (even though the design is clearly shit for no good reason).

https://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/11177 has their explanation of their
bad design.
