gummiboot does and there are patches for grub (but I don't think they
are upstreamed yet), I don't think anyone else do yet. That said,
other bootloaders could also add kernel-install hooks of their own to
update their configs to point at the correct kernel/initramfs images,
so they don't necessarily need to implement the spec to take advantage
I know Sébastien was looking at refind, did you find a simple way to
integrate this with refind without it implementing the boot spec?

At least one systemd patch is needed , and you need to symlink
/bin/installkernel or ~/bin/installkernel to /bin/kernel-install.
I'll resend after addressing your comments.
