This is a long belated reply to an old thread:

I just wanted to note that I made a quick implementation of this a
while back for Linux's EFI-stub which may be useful to folks
interested in this issue. Revisiting it now since the current 3.18-rc
development tree has enough other fixes that using this trick with my
particular laptop (MacBookPro11,3) is nearly practical. My current
patch is certainly not suitable for upstream but my hunch is that
handling quirks like this makes a lot more sense in Linux than GRUB.
That would require GRUB to adopt launching Linux via the 'chainloader'
command (admittedly I haven't tried this) or the currently unmerged
'linuxefi'  command from Fedora:

The attached patch for Linux is against 3.18-rc4+
