Subject: [PATCH v2 1/3] efi/arm: Remove __efistub_global annotation
Date: Thu, 16 Apr 2020 11:12:25 -0400
Message-ID: <20200416151227.3360778-2-nivedita@alum.mit.edu> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20200415221520.2692512-1-nivedita@alum.mit.edu>

Instead of using __efistub_global to force variables into the .data
section, leave them in the .bss but pull the EFI stub's .bss section
into .data in the linker script for the compressed kernel.
