Subject[PATCH 5.10 154/157] efi: use 32-bit alignment for efi_guid_t literals
Date
From: Ard Biesheuvel <ardb@kernel.org>

commit fb98cc0b3af2ba4d87301dff2b381b12eee35d7d upstream.

Commit 494c704f9af0 ("efi: Use 32-bit alignment for efi_guid_t") updated
the type definition of efi_guid_t to ensure that it always appears
sufficiently aligned (the UEFI spec is ambiguous about this, but given
the fact that its EFI_GUID type is defined in terms of a struct carrying
a uint32_t, the natural alignment is definitely >= 32 bits).

However, we missed the EFI_GUID() macro which is used to instantiate
efi_guid_t literals: that macro is still based on the guid_t type,
which does not have a minimum alignment at all. This results in warnings
such as

In file included from drivers/firmware/efi/mokvar-table.c:35:
include/linux/efi.h:1093:34: warning: passing 1-byte aligned argument to
4-byte aligned parameter 2 of 'get_var' may result in an unaligned pointer
access [-Walign-mismatch]
status = get_var(L"SecureBoot", &EFI_GLOBAL_VARIABLE_GUID, NULL, &size,
^
include/linux/efi.h:1101:24: warning: passing 1-byte aligned argument to
4-byte aligned parameter 2 of 'get_var' may result in an unaligned pointer
access [-Walign-mismatch]
get_var(L"SetupMode", &EFI_GLOBAL_VARIABLE_GUID, NULL, &size, &setupmode);

The distinction only matters on CPUs that do not support misaligned loads
fully, but 32-bit ARM's load-multiple instructions fall into that category,
and these are likely to be emitted by the compiler that built the firmware
for loading word-aligned 128-bit GUIDs from memory

So re-implement the initializer in terms of our own efi_guid_t type, so that
the alignment becomes a property of the literal's type.
