EFI stub calculates the total size of the events in the final events
table at the time.

Later on, TPM driver uses this offset to copy only the events that
were actually generated after ExitBootServices():

/*
* Copy any of the final events log that didn't also end up in the
* main log. Events can be logged in both if events are generated
* between GetEventLog() and ExitBootServices().
*/
memcpy((void *)log->bios_event_log + log_size,
final_tbl->events + log_tbl->final_events_preboot_size,
efi_tpm_final_log_size);

What would be a better way to describe this?
