Subject: [Xen-devel] [PATCH v5 24/35] OvmfPkg/XenPlatformPei: Reserve VGA memory region, to boot Linux
Date: Tue, 13 Aug 2019 12:31:08 +0100
Message-ID: <20190813113119.14804-25-anthony.perard@citrix.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20190813113119.14804-1-anthony.perard@citrix.com>

Linux panic if the VGA region isn't reserved.

When Linux is booted on EFI system, it expects the memory at 0xa0000 to
_not_ be conventional memory. Otherwise a variable isn't initialised
properly and Linux panic when a virtual console/terminal is asked to be
created.

See for more detail:
