Subject[GIT PULL] EFI changes for v4.2
Hi folks,

Please pull the following new material for v4.2. The most interesting
change is support for the EFI System Resource Table contributed by Peter
Jones. ESRT is new in the UEFI 2.5 specification (released April 2015)
and is used by Fedora's fwupdate tool when performing firmware updates.

The following changes since commit b787f68c36d49bb1d9236f403813641efa74a031:

Linux 4.1-rc1 (2015-04-26 17:59:10 -0700)

are available in the git repository at:

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/mfleming/efi.git tags/efi-next

for you to fetch changes up to c208358c2cc832eeb5b341a465eee30be19cd5a0:

efi: Add 'systab' information to Documentation/ABI (2015-05-27 15:40:20 +0100)

----------------------------------------------------------------
* Use idiomatic negative error values in efivar_create_sysfs_entry()
instead of returning '1' to indicate error - Dan Carpenter

* New support to expose the EFI System Resource Tables in sysfs, which
provides information for performing firmware updates - Peter Jones

* Documentation cleanup in the EFI handover protocol section which
falsely claimed that 'cmdline_size' needed to be filled out by the
boot loader - Alex Smith

* Align the order of SMBIOS tables in /sys/firmware/efi/systab to match
the way that we do things for ACPI and add documentation to
Documentation/ABI - Jean Delvare
