From: Steve McIntyre <steve-nt0JYOx6u4DQT0dZR+AlfA <at> public.gmane.org>
Subject: [PATCH] Expose underlying UEFI firmware platform size to userland
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel.efi
Date: Friday 9th January 2015 15:29:53 UTC (over 2 years ago)
In some cases (e.g. Intel Bay Trail machines), the kernel will happily
run in 64-bit even if the underlying UEFI firmware platform is
32-bit. That's great, but it's difficult for userland utilities like
grub-install to do the right thing in such a situation.

The kernel already knows about the size of the firmware via
efi_enabled(EFI_64BIT). Add an extra sysfs interface
/sys/firmware/efi/fw_platform_size to expose that information to
userland for low-level utilities to use.
