How would that be confusing? It has "__efi" prepended?!

All I'm saying is, if you're going to define your own function
attributes, do them generic and short. "_fixup" is too specific IMO. It
also enlarges function definitions unnecessarily.

With "__efi_init" you already denote that it is a special attribute
which has relevance in the EFI code only. What you do about it - the
*fixup* - is the thing you do with the attribute. But you don't have to
have the "what you do" in the attribute name too.


Good mailing practices for 400: avoid top-posting and trim the reply.
