After moving to efisubsys_init, the code will looks like below, because
the funtion only is used in drivers/firmware/efi/efi.c thus I can not
add a blank function in #else section in the efi.h header file. Creating
another header file for this one function looks bad to me.

Is below changes fine to you? I can add it to next version if you like it.
