Subject: [RFC PATCH 2/2] samsung-laptop: Disable on EFI hardware

From: Matt Fleming <matt.fleming@...el.com>

There have been reports of this driver causing Machine Check
Exceptions on recent EFI-enabled Samsung laptops,

	https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=47121

So disable it if booting from EFI since this driver relies on
grovelling around in the BIOS memory map which isn't going to work.
