Hi all,
         I created a minor patch (attached) to copy UEFI Shell to
(ISO)/EFI/boot/bootx64.efi apart from setting up efiboot.img. With
this change, creating a UEFI bootable USB is a simple task of
extracting Archiso to FAT32 formatted USB and booting it. Without this
change the user needs to use p7zip to extract files from efiboot.img .
The shell binary is very small so this should not be an issue.

I also added refind-efi-x86_64 to the list of packages in the ISO as
this is required for providing a menu for EFISTUB booting.
