I see al least two options:

(1) Write two syslinux/gummiboot entries per each current entry,
something like "start archlinux for Intel machine (except virtualized
enviroment)", "start archlinux for non-Intel machine".

(2) Always load intel-ucode.img for all enviroments, should be ignored
in cases where does not care.
