UEFI subsystem

Lauching UEFI images

Bootefi command

The bootefi command is used to start UEFI applications or to install UEFI drivers. It takes two parameters

bootefi <image address> [fdt address]

  • image address - the memory address of the UEFI binary

  • fdt address - the memory address of the flattened device tree

The environment variable ‘bootargs’ is passed as load options in the UEFI system table. The Linux kernel EFI stub uses the load options as command line arguments.

void efi_get_image_parameters(void **img_addr, size_t *img_size)

return image parameters

Parameters

void **img_addr

address of loaded image in memory

size_t *img_size

size of loaded image

void efi_clear_bootdev(void)

clear boot device

Parameters

void

no arguments

void efi_set_bootdev(const char *dev, const char *devnr, const char *path, void *buffer, size_t buffer_size)

Parameters

const char *dev

device, e.g. “MMC”

const char *devnr

number of the device, e.g. “1:2”

const char *path

path to file loaded

void *buffer

buffer with file loaded

size_t buffer_size

size of file loaded

Description

This function is called when a file is loaded, e.g. via the ‘load’ command. We use the path to this file to inform the UEFI binary about the boot device.

Description

If fdt is not EFI_FDT_USE_INTERNAL, the device tree located at that memory address will will be installed as configuration table, otherwise the device tree located at the address indicated by environment variable fdt_addr or as fallback fdtcontroladdr will be used.

Description

U-Boot services each UEFI AllocatePool() request as a separate (multiple) page allocation. We have to track the number of pages to be able to free the correct amount later.

The checksum calculated in function checksum() is used in FreePool() to avoid freeing memory not allocated by AllocatePool() and duplicate freeing.

EFI requires 8 byte alignment for pool allocations, so we can prepend each allocation with these header fields.
