Subject[ 46/75] efi: Validate UEFI boot variables
3.3-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------
From: Matthew Garrett <mjg@redhat.com>

commit fec6c20b570bcf541e581fc97f2e0cbdb9725b98 upstream.

A common flaw in UEFI systems is a refusal to POST triggered by a malformed
boot variable. Once in this state, machines may only be restored by
reflashing their firmware with an external hardware device. While this is
obviously a firmware bug, the serious nature of the outcome suggests that
operating systems should filter their variable writes in order to prevent
a malicious user from rendering the machine unusable.
