Subject[PATCH 5.4 185/191] efi: Dont attempt to map RCI2 config table if it doesnt exist
From: Ard Biesheuvel <>

[ Upstream commit a470552ee8965da0fe6fd4df0aa39c4cda652c7c ]


1c5fecb61255aa12 ("efi: Export Runtime Configuration Interface table to sysfs")

... added support for a Dell specific UEFI configuration table, but
failed to take into account that mapping the table should not be
attempted unless the table actually exists. If it doesn't exist,
the code usually fails silently unless pr_debug() prints are
enabled. However, on 32-bit PAE x86, the splat below is produced due
to the attempt to map the placeholder value EFI_INVALID_TABLE_ADDR
which we use for non-existing UEFI configuration tables, and which
equals ULONG_MAX.

memremap attempted on mixed range 0x00000000ffffffff size: 0x1e

Fix this by checking whether the table exists before attempting to map it.
