OK, I re-did the merge against v3.9 as requested and published it as
'efi-for-tip2'. Would you like me to send a proper pull request if
that's easier to pull into the tip machinery?

I have also started accumulating fixes against the EFI changes in
tip/x86/efi. Would you like those as a separate pull request? The fixes
branch is 'efi-for-tip-fixes' and is based on the above merge branch,
'efi-for-tip2'. It mainly includes fixes for bugs in the pstore paths
which Seiji Aguchi found.
