When I kickstart, I check "/sys/firmware" for 'efi' which exists, which I later use to influence which command to use to rebuild grub.
My point is that anaconda should be able to check for /sys/firmware/efi, for forcing hybrid usage, or it is only a BIOS host.

Yes, Anaconda could look if we can install also UEFI next to the BIOS but the point is
that most of the users do not want this and we are not able to figure out if we
should install only UEFI or both BIOS boot + UEFI.
