OK, well here it is again for everyone's reviwing pleasure:


From: Frederic Riss <frederic.riss@gmail.com>

When calling into the EFI firmware, the parameters need to be passed on
the stack. The recent change to use -mregparm=3 breaks x86 EFI support.
This patch is needed to allow the new Intel-based Macs to suspend to ram
(efi.get_time is called during the suspend phase).
