Subject[PATCH v4 13/17] ARM: Xen: Document UEFI support on Xen ARM virtual platforms
Date
From: Shannon Zhao <shannon.zhao@linaro.org>

Add a "uefi" node under /hypervisor node in FDT, then Linux kernel could
scan this to get the UEFI information.

A GIC node is also required.

+To support UEFI on Xen ARM virtual platforms, Xen populates the FDT "uefi" node
+under /hypervisor with following parameters:
+
+________________________________________________________________________________
+Name | Size | Description
+================================================================================
+xen,uefi-system-table | 64-bit | Guest physical address of the UEFI System
+ | | Table.
+--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
+xen,uefi-mmap-start | 64-bit | Guest physical address of the UEFI memory
+ | | map.
+--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
+xen,uefi-mmap-size | 32-bit | Size in bytes of the UEFI memory map
+ | | pointed to in previous entry.
+--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
+xen,uefi-mmap-desc-size | 32-bit | Size in bytes of each entry in the UEFI
+ | | memory map.
+--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
+xen,uefi-mmap-desc-ver | 32-bit | Version of the mmap descriptor format.
+--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Example (assuming #address-cells = <2> and #size-cells = <2>):

+The format and meaning of the "xen,uefi-*" parameters are similar to those in
+Documentation/arm/uefi.txt, which are provided by the regular UEFI stub. However
+they differ because they are provided by the Xen hypervisor, together with a set
+of UEFI runtime services implemented via hypercalls, see
+http://xenbits.xen.org/docs/unstable/hypercall/x86_64/include,public,platform.h.html.
