    Subject[PATCH 0/9] x86 EFI boot stub
    Date
    From: Matt Fleming <matt.fleming@intel.com>

    This series adds support for an EFI boot stub, similar to the existing
    BIOS boot stub. The result is that you can boot a bzImage on an EFI
    machine without the use of a boot loader by making the bzImage appear
    to the EFI firmware to be an EFI application. Also, a single bzImage
    can be booted on either a BIOS or EFI machine.

    Using the EFI boot stub has the advantage that the kernel is
    responsible for configuring the machine to the point where we can
    fully boot the kernel, so we are no longer at the mercy of the boot
    loader.

    This series is also available in the 'x86/efi-stub' branch at,

    git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/mfleming/linux-2.6.git

    Matt Fleming (9):
    x86: Don't use magic strings for EFI loader signature
    efi.h: Add struct definition for boot time services
    efi.h: Add efi_image_loaded_t
    efi.h: Add allocation types for boottime->allocate_pages()
    efi.h: Add graphics protocol guid
    efi.h: Add boottime->locate_handle search types
    efi: Add EFI file I/O data types
    x86, efi: EFI boot stub support
    x86, efi: Make efi_call_phys_prelog() CONFIG_RELOCATABLE-aware
