Subject: [PATCH 4.9 02/29] efi: Allow EFI_MEMORY_XP and EFI_MEMORY_RO both to be cleared
Date: Tue,  8 Jun 2021 20:26:56 +0200
Message-ID: <20210608175927.901577449@linuxfoundation.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20210608175927.821075974@linuxfoundation.org>

From: Heiner Kallweit <hkallweit1@gmail.com>

[ Upstream commit 45add3cc99feaaf57d4b6f01d52d532c16a1caee ]

UEFI spec 2.9, p.108, table 4-1 lists the scenario that both attributes
are cleared with the description "No memory access protection is
possible for Entry". So we can have valid entries where both attributes
are cleared, so remove the check.
