Subject: [PATCH 3.2 134/185] x86, efi: Don't use (U)EFI time services on
 32 bit

3.2.54-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Matthew Garrett <>

commit 04bf9ba720fcc4fa313fa122b799ae0989b6cd50 upstream.

UEFI time services are often broken once we're in virtual mode. We were
already refusing to use them on 64-bit systems, but it turns out that
they're also broken on some 32-bit firmware, including the Dell Venue.
Disable them for now, we can revisit once we have the 1:1 mappings code
