[PATCH 0/7] efi: Pass secure boot mode to kernel [ver #7]

From: David Howells
Date: Tue Jan 31 2017 - 10:13:23 EST

Here's a set of patches that can determine the secure boot state of the
UEFI BIOS and pass that along to the main kernel image. This involves
generalising ARM's efi_get_secureboot() function and making it mixed-mode


Ver 7:

- Rebased on efi/next.
- Remove the EFI_SECURE_BOOT flag bit and defer it for later. Don't
- Preclear boot_params->secure_boot and don't clear it in
- Don't probe for the secure-boot mode if the boot loader gives us this
mode (ie. if boot_params->secure_boot is non-zero).

[*] There's a bug in grub2 whereby it copies too much, sets the sentinel
byte and triggers the sanitisation.

Ver 6:

- Removed unnecessary variable init and trimmed comment.
- Return efi_secureboot_mode_disabled directly rather than going to a
place that just returns it.
- Switched the last two patches.

Ver 5:

- Fix i386 compilation error (rsi should've been changed to esi).
- Fix arm64 compilation error ('sys_table_arg' is a hidden macro parameter).

Ver 4:

- Use an enum to tell the kernel whether secure boot mode is enabled,
disabled, couldn't be determined or wasn't even tried due to not being
in EFI mode.
- Support the UEFI-2.6 DeployedMode flag.
- Don't clear boot_params->secure_boot in x86 sanitize_boot_params().
- Preclear the boot_params->secure_boot on x86 head_*.S entry if we may
not go through efi_main().
