[kvm-unit-tests PATCH v4 0/2] UEFI Improvements

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Patch-1: Introduces a fix for x86 arch which is ACPI-based to not get
	 into the path of fdt.

Patch-2: KUT UEFI-based guest may sometimes fail to exit boot services
	 due to a possible memory map update that might have taken place
	 between efi_get_memory_map() call and efi_exit_boot_services()
	call. As per UEFI specification (2.10), we need to try and keep
	updating the memory map as long as we get Invalid key failure.

v3 -> v4:
    * Dropped patches 3 & 4 from the series as they are not relevant to 
      UEFI improvements introduced in this patchset. This would aid in 
      easier review and upstreaming.
    * Addressed feedback (Andrew)
    * Included R-b tag from Andrew Jones.

v2 -> v3:
    * Included R-b tag from Andrew for Patch-1.
    * Updated patch-2 to not leak memory map information during 
      re-trials to efi_get_memory_map().

v1 -> v2:
    * Incorporated feedback (Andrew, Mike, Tom)
    * Updated patch-2 to keep trying to update memory map and calls to 
      exit boot services as long as there is a failure.
    * Split Page allocation and GHCB page attributes patch into two 
Pavan Kumar Paluri (2):
  x86 EFI: Bypass call to fdt_check_header()
  x86/efi: Retry call to efi exit boot services
