I would be fine with two builds of UEFI, as suggested by mouse.

What is the process for adding extra drivers to NetBSD for boards using
ACPI, do we need to get you to add definitions for them to the APCI
table in UEFI?

Or can devices be configured just using the device tree as well?

I'm trying to work out how to handle the GPU, we maybe want to be able
to build both ACPI and FDT versions of a module for it.
