Subject: [PATCH 01/19] efi/libstub/x86: Remove pointless zeroing of apm_bios_info
Date: Mon, 10 Feb 2020 17:02:30 +0100
Message-ID: <20200210160248.4889-2-ardb@kernel.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20200210160248.4889-1-ardb@kernel.org>

We have some code in the EFI stub entry point that takes the address
of the apm_bios_info struct in the newly allocated and zeroed out
boot_params structure, only to zero it out again. This is pointless
so remove it.
