Subject[PATCH 04/10] efi: Introduce EFI_MEM_ATTR bit and set it from memory attributes table
Date
From: Sai Praneeth <sai.praneeth.prakhya@intel.com>

UEFI v2.6 introduces a configuration table called
EFI_MEMORY_ATTRIBUTES_TABLE which provides additional information about
efi runtime regions. Currently this table describes memory protections
that may be applied to EFI Runtime code and data regions by kernel.
Allocate a EFI_XXX bit to keep track of whether this feature is
published by firmware or not.
