OS X is already aware of UEFI and GPT, so it makes perfect sense that
it'd boot correctly on its own hardware.  You may wish to consider using
a tool like rEFIt (http://refit.sourceforge.net/) or rEFInd
(http://www.rodsbooks.com/refind/installing.html#installsh) to help
manage booting linux on your Mac.
