Subject[PATCH v5 00/14] kexec kernel efi runtime support

Here is the V5 patchset for supporting kexec kernel efi runtime.
Per pervious discussion I pass the 1st kernel efi runtime mapping
via setup_data to 2nd kernel. Besides of the runtime mapping
info I also pass the fw_vendor, runtime, config table, smbios
physical address in setup_data. EFI spec mentioned fw_vendor,
runtime, config table addresses will be converted to virt address
after entering virtual mode, but we will use it as physical address
in efi_init. For smbios EFI spec did not mention about the address
updating, but during my test on a HP workstation, the bios will
convert it to Virt addr, thus pass it in setup_data as well.

For fw_vendor, runtime, config table, I export them in /sys/firmware/
efi/, smbios is already in /sys/firmware/efi/systab.

For efi runtime mapping I add a new directory /sys/firmware/efi/
runtime-map/ like below
[dave@darkstar ~]$ tree /sys/firmware/efi/runtime-map/
|__ 0
| |__ attribute
| |__ num_pages
| |__ phys_addr
| |__ type
| |__ virt_addr
|__ 1

kexec-tools will assemble them as setup_data and pass to 2nd kernel.
I will send userspace patches as well.

Limitation is I only write support for x86_64, test on below machines:
Lenovo thinkpad t420
Dell inspiron 14 - 3421
HP Z420 workstation
Qemu + OVMF

The patches are based on linus tree + matt's efi master tree

Changes from v1:
add one flag in xloadflags, so kexec-tools can safely load old kernel
without efi support.
coding style fixes
function name for map phys_addr to fixed virt_addr
Add ABI documentation for sysfs files

Changes from v2:
01/09: a new patch to remove unused variables in __map_region function
catched by Toshi Kani
09/09: a new patch to export x86 boot_params to sysfs instead of use
debugfs files
Matt: reuse __map_region instead do same thing in another function.
add a wrapper function efi_map_region_fixed [02/09]
check return value of krealloc
sysfs dir name s/efi-runtime-map/runtime-map [06/09]
use desc_size in efi_runtime_map
for the xloadflags defination: +&& defined(CONFIG_KEXEC)
Greg: sysfs : one file one value for fw_vendor, runtime, tables. [05/09]
Document them in ABI testing
HPA: Document the new xloadflag
Also there's other function cleanup and improvement for error handling.

Changes from v3:
Greg: sysfs code move to use __ATTR_RO and attr_group
Boris: comments and code alignment

Added 3 new patches below
- 10/12: print only runtime ranges in case EFI_DEBUG printing
- fix a bug of kdump kernel, move function for reserving setup data
ranges late after parsing memmap= cmdline params because kdump kernel
will pass exact memmap late.
- fix a bug of x86/kernel/kdebugfs.c, use ioremap instead of __va for
low mem because __va does not work for exact memmap=

Changes from V4:
- variable efi_setup in 09/14 is changed to the physical address instead of the virtual address
because it will be not iounmapped until entering virtual mode, it's too long and could cause
- sparse warnings fixes (Matt):
Added 2 new patches to addressing sparse warnings:
01/14: x86-mm-sparse-warning-fix-for-early_memremap.patch
02/14: efi-use-early_memremap-and-early_memunmap.patch
- krealloc fixes (Boris)
- rebase on top of Linus tree + Matt's efi master tree (Boris)
- a lot of documention/spelling fixes (Boris)
- share function save_runtime_map in 1st/2nd kernel code (Matt)
- style and other fixes detail see the patch changelog themselves.

Boris: I still use the function name efi_reuse_config because it could be not only a problem for
HP workstation, also because we will later split them to another file so efi_ is acceptable for me.

The patches stay in kexec-efi-testing branch of below repo for testing:

Dave Young (14):
x86/mm: sparse warning fix for early_memremap
efi: use early_memremap and early_memunmap
efi: remove unused variables in __map_region
efi: add a wrapper function efi_map_region_fixed
efi: reserve boot service fix
efi: cleanup efi_enter_virtual_mode function
efi: export more efi table variable to sysfs
efi: export efi runtime memory mapping to sysfs
efi: passing kexec necessary efi data via setup_data
efi: only print saved efi runtime maps instead of all memmap ranges
for kexec
x86: add xloadflags bit for efi runtime support on kexec
x86: export x86 boot_params to sysfs
x86: reserve setup_data ranges late after parsing memmap cmdline
x86: kdebugfs do not use __va for getting setup_data virt addr
