Incredible, you have re-invented coreboot!

Well, maybe not, it is Red Hat after all.

How about putting your efforts into the existing project instead,
that way you can also draw on the significant experience within
that project.

If you want to optimize for the Linux special case then you should
not be using anything BIOS-related at all.

Try coreboot with kernel as payload.
