[PATCH 0/2] efi: cosmetic patches for the error messages when loading certificates

From: Lee, Chun-Yi
Date: Thu Dec 12 2019 - 04:38:25 EST

When loading certificates list from EFI variables, the error
message and efi status code always be emitted to dmesg. It looks

[ 2.335031] Couldn't get size: 0x800000000000000e
[ 2.335032] Couldn't get UEFI MokListRT
[ 2.339985] Couldn't get size: 0x800000000000000e
[ 2.339987] Couldn't get UEFI dbx list

This cosmetic patch set moved the above messages to the error
handling code path. And, it adds a function to transfer EFI status
code to string to improve the readability of debug log. The function
can also be used in other EFI log.

Lee, Chun-Yi (2):
efi: add a function for transferring status to string
efi: show error messages only when loading certificates is failed
