Subject: [PATCH] efi/x86: Drop the special GDT for the EFI thunk
Date: Sat, 23 May 2020 18:15:13 -0400
Message-ID: <20200523221513.1642948-1-nivedita@alum.mit.edu> (raw)

Instead of using efi_gdt64 to switch back to 64-bit mode and then
switching to the real boot-time GDT, just switch to the boot-time GDT
directly. The two GDT's are identical other than efi_gdt64 not including
the 32-bit code segment.
