Subject[PATCH 26/33] efi/arm: Remove __efistub_global annotation
Date
From: Arvind Sankar <nivedita@alum.mit.edu>

Instead of using __efistub_global to force variables into the .data
section, leave them in the .bss but pull the EFI stub's .bss section
into .data in the linker script for the compressed kernel.
