Subject: Re: [PATCH v5 14/18] arm64: add __nocfi to functions that jump to a
 physical address

[adding Ard for EFI runtime services bits]

What does physical vs virtual have to do with this? Does the address
actually matter, or is this just a general thing that when calling an
assembly function we won't have a trampoline that the caller expects?

I wonder if we need to do something with asmlinkage here, perhaps?

I didn't spot anything in the seriues handling EFI runtime services
calls, and I strongly suspect we need to do something for those, unless
they're handled implicitly by something else.

Given these are inlines, what's the effect when these are inlined into a
function that would normally use CFI? Does CFI get supressed for the
whole function, or just the bit that got inlined?

Is there an attribute that we could place on a function pointer to tell
the compiler to not check calls via that pointer? If that existed we'd
be able to scope this much more tightly.

Thanks,
Mark.
