efi: split efisubsystem from efivars
This registers /sys/firmware/efi/{,systab,efivars/} whenever EFI is enabled and the system is booted with EFI. This allows *) userspace to check for the existence of /sys/firmware/efi as a way to determine whether or it is running on an EFI system. *) 'mount -t efivarfs none /sys/firmware/efi/efivars' without manually loading any modules. [ Also, move the efivar API into vars.c and unconditionally compile it. This allows us to move efivars.c, which now only contains the sysfs variable code, into the firmware/efi directory. Note that the efivars.c filename is kept to maintain backwards compatability with the old efivars.ko module. With this patch it is now possible for efivarfs to be built without CONFIG_EFI_VARS - Matt ] Cc: Seiji Aguchi <seiji.aguchi@hds.com> Cc: Tony Luck <tony.luck@intel.com> Cc: Mike Waychison <mikew@google.com> Cc: Kay Sievers <kay@vrfy.org> Cc: Jeremy Kerr <jk@ozlabs.org> Cc: Matthew Garrett <mjg59@srcf.ucam.org> Cc: Chun-Yi Lee <jlee@suse.com> Cc: Andy Whitcroft <apw@canonical.com> Cc: Tobias Powalowski <tpowa@archlinux.org> Signed-off-by: Tom Gundersen <teg@jklm.no> Signed-off-by: Matt Fleming <matt.fleming@intel.com>
