Subject[PATCH v12 1/4] efi: Introduce EFI_FIRMWARE_MANAGEMENT_CAPSULE_HEADER and corresponding structures
Platform Firmware Runtime Update image starts with UEFI headers, and the
headers are defined in UEFI specification, but some of them have not been
defined in the kernel yet.

For example, the header layout of a capsule file looks like this:


These structures would be used by the Platform Firmware Runtime Update
driver to parse the format of capsule file to verify if the corresponding
version number is valid. In this way, if the user provides an invalid
capsule image, the kernel could be used as a guard to reject it, without
switching to the Management Mode (which might be costly).

EFI_CAPSULE_HEADER has been defined in the kernel, but the other
structures have not been defined yet, so do that. Besides,
in the uefi specification. For this reason, use the __packed attribute
to indicate to the compiler that the entire structure can appear
misaligned in memory (as suggested by Ard) in case one of them follows
the other directly in a capsule header.

v12:No change since v11.

in kernel rather than letting Management Mode to do it.

copy the non-variable-length struct pfru_update_cap_info to userspace
directly. (Greg Kroah-Hartman)
Change the type of rev_id from int to u32, because this data will
be copied between kernel and userspace. (Greg Kroah-Hartman)

to indicate that this filed is the parent of the created miscdev.
(Greg Kroah-Hartman)
Use blank lines between different macro sections. (Greg Kroah-Hartman)
Illusatrate the possible errno for each ioctl interface.
(Greg Kroah-Hartman)

Replace the UUID_SIZE in uapi with 16 directly. (Andy Shevchenko)
Add blank line between generic include header and uapi header.
(Andy Shevchenko)
Arrange the order between devm_kzalloc() and normal allocation in
acpi_pfru_probe() that, the former should always be ahead of the
latter. (Andy Shevchenko)
Move the UUID from uapi header to the c file. (Andy Shevchenko)
v7: Use ida_alloc() to allocate a ID, and release the ID when
device is removed. (Greg Kroah-Hartman)
Check the _DSM method at early stage, before allocate or parse
anything in acpi_pfru_probe(). (Greg Kroah-Hartman)
Set the parent of the misc device. (Greg Kroah-Hartman)
Use module_platform_driver() instead of platform_driver_register()
in module_init(). Separate pfru driver and pfru_telemetry driver
to two files. (Greg Kroah-Hartman)
v6: Use Link: tag to add the specification download address.
(Andy Shevchenko)
Remove linux/uuid.h and use raw buffers to contain uuid.
(Andy Shevchenko)
Drop comma for each terminator entry in the enum structure.
(Andy Shevchenko)
Remove redundant 'else' in get_image_type().
(Andy Shevchenko)
Directly return results from the switch cases in adjust_efi_size()
and pfru_ioctl().(Andy Shevchenko)
Keep comment style consistent by removing the period for
one line comment.
(Andy Shevchenko)
Remove devm_kfree() if .probe() failed.

from 16 to 8. (Greg Kroah-Hartman)

static. (kernel test robot LKP)
