  ARM: decompressor: run decompressor in place if loaded via UEFI (2020-05-06 09:58:24 +0200)

Simply EFI handover to decompressor

The EFI stub in the ARM kernel runs in the context of the firmware, which
means it usually runs with the caches and MMU on. Currently, we relocate
the zImage so it appears in the first 128 MiB, disable the MMU and caches
and invoke the decompressor via its ordinary entry point. However, since we
can pass the base of DRAM directly, there is no need to relocate the zImage,
which also means there is no need to disable and re-enable the caches and
create new page tables etc.

Ard Biesheuvel (5):
      ARM: decompressor: move headroom variable out of LC0
      ARM: decompressor: split off _edata and stack base into separate object
      ARM: decompressor: defer loading of the contents of the LC0 structure
      ARM: decompressor: move GOT into .data for EFI enabled builds
      ARM: decompressor: run decompressor in place if loaded via UEFI
