Tip folks,

I applied the following to the 'efi-for-tip' branch in the EFI
repository. Unless someone complains I'll send a pull request shortly.

commit da74caa6cead3f6c55dabcaa7b397b2fddd655e3

ia64, efi: select UCS2_STRING when building EFI support

The ucs2 string library functions are required by the core EFI code.
Select UCS2_STRING from the EFI symbol entry in arch/ia64/Kconfig, just
like we do for x86. This Kconfig bug was caused by a mis-merge in commit
e29c2de5f591 ("Merge tag 'v3.9-rc8' into efi-for-tip").
