Subject[GIT PULL] ibft fix for 3.2-rc6
Hey Linus,

Please git pull the following branch:

git pull git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/konrad/ibft.git linux-next

which has a fix to make the ACPI table called 'iSCSI Boot Format Table'
(IBFT) be found by the iscsi-ibft driver when booting under UEFI.

The functionality to grab the APCI IBFT was added some time ago, but we
did not have the UEFI box to test it. Now that it has been tested it was
uncovered that the ACPI parser code was run way to early - so it did not
parse the iBFT table at all. This patch fixes it by doing the ACPI parsing later.
The legacy iBFT searching is not affected (which is to scan 640K->1MB
for the iBFT signature) and works correctly.

Please pull!
