[PATCH] AMD, K7: Fix compilation error when EFI is enabled
From: Borislav Petkov
Date: Thu Mar 29 2012 - 03:39:51 EST
Trevor Turner reported that building the 3.3 kernel on his K7 box fails.
Reproducing the issue locally got us also the exact build error:
arch/x86/boot/compressed/eboot.o: In function `efi_main':
eboot.c:(.text+0x1530): undefined reference to `_mmx_memcpy'
eboot.c:(.text+0x17d0): undefined reference to `_mmx_memcpy'
make: *** [arch/x86/boot/compressed/vmlinux] Error 1
make: *** [arch/x86/boot/compressed/vmlinux] Error 2
make: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs....
due to the fact that K7 has special MMX memcpy routines which EFI uses
through memcpy but is not linked against them thus the build failure.
Instead of making this work, we decided to make EFI and K7 mutually
exclusive since they're from different epochs anyway. The patch below

This enables the kernel to use EFI runtime services that are
available (such as the EFI variable services).
