Subject[PATCH v4 5/6] arm64/efi: ignore DT memory nodes instead of removing them
Date
From: Ard Biesheuvel <ard.biesheuvel@linaro.org>

There are two problems with the UEFI stub DT memory node removal
routine:
- it deletes nodes as it traverses the tree, which happens to work
but is not supported, as deletion invalidates the node iterator;
- deleting memory nodes entirely may discard annotations in the form
of additional properties on the nodes.

Now that the UEFI initialization has moved to an earlier stage, we can
actually just ignore any memblocks that are installed after we have
processed the UEFI memory map. This way, it is no longer necessary to
remove the nodes, so we can remove that logic from the stub as well.
