Issue: RHEL 8 contains package edk2-ovmf that is automatically pulled in with dependencies when installing libvirt and provides "some" UEFI firmware. This firmware however seems to only run with Q35 machine type which is not the one that get used when defining VM from fast-vm libvirt template. This firmware is usable when used with Q35 machine that requires 'no IDE' and 'PCIe' root port. So here we would either need new templates for Q35 machines so this runs with what is installed on RHEL8 or providing separate location for firmware in libvirt xml file.
In both cases a separate XML would be needed. For now the dirty (and working) way is to replace one symlink that RHEL 8 uses so we can use procedure that worked well on RHEL 7.
