Subject[GIT PULL 00/25] EFI updates for v5.6
Ingo, Thomas,

Please consider the pull request below. I am anticipating some more
changes for this cycle, but it would be good to get these queued up and
into -next sooner rather than later, since there is some risk of
breakage even though the changes have been tested on a variety of

If you have the stomach to go over them in detail: please take into
account that these patches modify the same efi_call_xxx() macro
definitions multiple times, in order to be bisectable, so please
consider the end result first before commenting on coding style of the
intermediate changes.

NOTE: this series depends on the efi-urgent PR that I just sent out, so
please merge tip/efi/urgent into tip/efi/core before applying the
changes below.

Thanks and happy Christmas,

efi/libstub/x86: avoid globals to store context during mixed mode calls (2019-12-24 15:32:22 +0100)

EFI changes for v5.6:
- Cleanup of the GOP [graphics output] handling code in the EFI stub (Arvind)
- Inspired by the above, and with a little bit of Arvind's help, a complete
refactor of the mixed mode handling in the x86 EFI stub, getting rid of a
lot of ugly and unnecessary wrapping and typecasting. This is a worthwhile
cleanup by itself, but it also addresses a recurring issue where stub code
often fails to compile on non-x86 because all the casting and thunking via
variadic wrapper routines is masking problems in the code.

Ard Biesheuvel (21):
efi/libstub: remove unused __efi_call_early() macro
efi/x86: rename efi_is_native() to efi_is_mixed()
efi/libstub: use a helper to iterate over a EFI handle array
efi/libstub: extend native protocol definitions with mixed_mode aliases
efi/libstub: distinguish between native/mixed not 32/64 bit
efi/libstub: drop explicit 32/64-bit protocol definitions
efi/libstub: use stricter typing for firmware function pointers
efi/libstub: annotate firmware routines as __efiapi
efi/libstub/x86: avoid thunking for native firmware calls
efi/libstub: avoid protocol wrapper for file I/O routines
efi/libstub: get rid of 'sys_table_arg' macro parameter
efi/libstub: unify the efi_char16_printk implementations
efi/libstub/x86: drop __efi_early() export and efi_config struct
efi/libstub: drop sys_table_arg from printk routines
efi/libstub: remove 'sys_table_arg' from all function prototypes
efi/libstub/x86: work around page freeing issue in mixed mode
efi/libstub: drop protocol argument from efi_call_proto() macro
efi/libstub: drop 'table' argument from efi_table_attr() macro
efi/libstub: rename efi_call_early/_runtime macros to be more intuitive
efi/libstub: tidy up types and names of global cmdline variables
efi/libstub/x86: avoid globals to store context during mixed mode calls

Arvind Sankar (4):
efi/gop: Remove bogus packed attribute from GOP structures
efi/gop: Remove unused typedef
efi/gop: Convert GOP structures to typedef and cleanup some types
efi/gop: Unify 32/64-bit functions
