3.5.7.17 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Seiji Aguchi <seiji.aguchi@hds.com>

commit d80a361d779a9f19498943d1ca84243209cd5647 upstream.

[Issue]

As discussed in a thread below, Running out of space in EFI isn't a well-tested scenario.
And we wouldn't expect all firmware to handle it gracefully.
http://marc.info/?l=linux-kernel&m=134305325801789&w=2

On the other hand, current efi_pstore doesn't check a remaining space of storage at writing time.
Therefore, efi_pstore may not work if it tries to write a large amount of data.

[Patch Description]

To avoid handling the situation above, this patch checks if there is a space enough to log with
QueryVariableInfo() before writing data.
