SubjectRE: [PATCH 5/5] efi: Capsule update support and pstore backend

There's also an "either/or" choice between using efi-capsule with pstore, and the
traditional kexec/kdump method for getting a memory dump from a crash. We
have to go through a reset to save the capsule - but we don't want a reset for
kexec. Perhaps we can pass the reset parameters through the kexec path to
the new kernel to make it do the right kind of reset ... but the value of the capsule
dump is minimal if kdump managed to dump everything.

Bottom line: users need to make an informed choice to use efi-capsule + pstore.
