Subject[PATCH 5.9 19/74] fs/kernel_read_file: Remove FIRMWARE_EFI_EMBEDDED enum
Date
From: Kees Cook <keescook@chromium.org>

commit 06e67b849ab910a49a629445f43edb074153d0eb upstream.

The "FIRMWARE_EFI_EMBEDDED" enum is a "where", not a "what". It
should not be distinguished separately from just "FIRMWARE", as this
confuses the LSMs about what is being loaded. Additionally, there was
no actual validation of the firmware contents happening.

Fixes: e4c2c0ff00ec ("firmware: Add new platform fallback mechanism and firmware_request_platform()")
