Subject: [PATCH v3 0/3] (U)EFI runtime services for arm
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Thursday 28th November 2013 16:41:20 UTC (over 3 years ago)
In systems based on [U]EFI-conformant firmware, runtime services provide
a standardised way for the kernel to update firmware environment
variables. This is used for example by efibootmgr to update which image
should be loaded on next boot.

This patchset implements basic support for UEFI runtime services on ARM
platforms, as well as the basic underlying EFI support. It also defines
a mechanism by which the required information is passed from the
bootloader (the EFI stub submitted separately) to the kernel via FDT
entries.

This patchset depends on the presence of early_ioremap(). It has been
validated against Mark Salter's generic implementation.

Changes from v2:
- Updated FDT bindings.
- The EFI stub is now the only loader that will support the kernel
  enabling runtime services.
- Documentation updates.

Changes from v1:
- Updated FDT bindings, based on feedback.
- Use common config table scanning and address lookup code.
- Add dependency on !CPU_BIG_ENDIAN (for now).
- Add proper efi_enabled() facility.
- Documentation updates.
