SubjectRe: [PATCH 2.6.21 1/3] x86_64: EFI64 support

Hi Randy,

Based on the feedback from Andi and you, these are the areas:

1. conversion of EFI memory map to e820 map
2. Consolidation/sharing of efi code among the architectures.
3. Coding style violations/typos/clarity in comments.

First I apologize for the coding style violations where I should have
done better. I will fix these in the next patch.

I would like to address the above in stages with patch updates. This
will take me some time with the fixes and testing.

A while back, Edgar Hucek submitted a patch (probably 2.6.18 mm tree?)
for efi to e820 memory mapping for i386.I don't see this code in the
2.6.21 release which makes me wonder whether it was accepted and the
history behind it. Any pointers in this regard?
